One Chinese pig farmer says he has an unusual way to produce better tasting bacon. Huang Demin of Ningxiang county in Hunan province makes his pigs dive, everyday, from a roughly ten-foot-tall wooden platform into a pond.


Not sure about this....seems cruel to me :unsure2:

Of course. Everyone knows that.

BTW, I read Divine Pigs at first. That would be even weirder.

If true, what made him think of making the pig dive in the first place to see if it made better tasting meat?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I lost interest in the pigs when I saw the bacon bikini top at the bottom of the page.

I didn't scroll down that far to see the bacon bikini at first - I wish I hadn't now!

This seems like a little much to me.  Let the pig be a pig.

Oye, us humans are weird. That's just crazy nonsense.
Kind of like trying to make beef more tender by having dynamite explode near it.

I wonder if the flavour that makes bacon so appealing is enhanced by the adrenalin borne of fear in making the jumps.  Or, if they do it every day and overcome their fear, come to enjoy it immensely in fact, is it enhanced due to the neuropeptides that are produced, either way?

The experience is bound to strengthen them physically so perhaps they lay down more muscle? Sounds a little scary for the poor buggers - at least at first.  They are very intelligent creatures.

They certainly do when they dive into a frying pan.
