Back in February, firefighters in the Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to a farm in Wiltshire, England.
Where hens were trapped indoors, flames had engulfed a barn there. Just months afterwards, they had no difficulty eating the grown-up piglets, although the firefighters ended up saving the lives of two sows and 18 baby pigs.
After the flame, farmer Rachel Rivers was so thankful to the firefighters that she guaranteed them a present later on…
…that was be piglets in the mess they had stored — just not alive. The piglets were slaughtered, six months after they were rescued from the flame. “I wanted to thank [the firefighters],” Rivers said. “I promised them in the time I’d bring some sausages for them down, which they were all pleased about. ”
The group barbecued and ate the sausages made in the piglets this week, stating they were happy to finally “sample the fruits of [their] labor.” Understandably, this disturbs some.
