Apparently: "A drunk man stabbed 29 pigs in Minnesota, hurting them so badly they had to be slaughtered, according to charges filed against the man by police."
"A veterinarian said the best option was to "euthanize" the pigs, which were worth $7,824.67, according to police testimony."
Euthanize would be the humane euphemism for their fate pre-stabbing: butchered in an abattoir. Slaughtering is the new euthanasia....
Depending on the context one man can get animal cruelty charges, another gets almost 8 grand.
In either case, someone's eatin' bacon.
