It is a well-known fact that several religious texts forbid the eating of pork. According to Leviticus, the third book of Judaism’s Torah and Christianity’s Old Testament, pork is an “unclean” meat since pigs do not “chew the cud.” Meanwhile, the eating of pork is condemned no less than four times in the Qur’an of Islam. While no direct reason is given for this condemnation, many Muslims believe that it is because pigs are disease-ridden animals.
A toddler from China is slain and partially eaten by a hungry pig, after he was secretly crept into the pigsty of his parents. The parents took their two-year-old son ‘Wei Tsao “in a pool of blood back while the pig was busy chewing on his head.
Pig open obtained for evidence
Other villagers rush to the pigsty, where they heard screams and crying. The pig is in the end gripped by the legs and tied to a tree to cut open the stomach. Village leader heng Yuan, 62, said: “This is a terrible tragedy. We had to cut open the pig, not as an act of revenge, but to demonstrate to the authorities that the beast had indeed slain and eaten their son. ‘
