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.
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.
