Again, this was an actual news article this week. Sometime you just have to wonder if everyone walking upright really evolved or if they are just imitating humans!

Two Die in Pig Shock Horror
BUDAPEST (Reuters) - The annual pre-Christmas swine slaughter in a southwestern Hungarian village came to a shocking end on Saturday after one man died of electrocution while trying to stun a pig, whose owner then died of heart attack. Celebrations at the pig-killing party in Darvaspuszta took a turn for the worse when an unnamed visiting Croatian man shocked himself to death while trying to knock out a pig with a homemade electric pig stunner, national news agency MTI said A local man ended up in hospital with an irregular heart rhythm after attempting a rescue by trying to unplug the device. The accident so upset the pig's owner, he suffered a heart attack and died.
There was no word on the fate of the pig.

Bill,

Would that be for the "Stupid Pet Tricks" or "Stupid Human Tricks"?

just a note,
I had a good pig year this year, breaking the 300lb mark with the largest
(spring to fall)
pigs are a fairly smart animal, and you don't force a 300lb one to go anywhere, unless you wish to administer the ol' lead earplug & carry him there.
