Someone is killing the famous Swimming Pigs of the Bahamas. Yes, there is apparently a herd of feral but friendly pigs that like to swim with the tourists. Mostly because the tourists have delicious food, and pigs is pigs.

Only, they think maybe someone is giving them booze, because about half the herd of twenty have floated to shore dead. Honestly, they could wait for the autopsy.

Mystery pigs. Not native to the Bahamas and nobody really knows where and when they arrived. Possibly with sailors hoping to come back for them.

Donald Trump Jr. took a snapshot of his family with the pigs last Summer. I’m surprised nobody’s blamed his dad yet.

I hope somebody figures out the cause of death and puts a stop to it. I’d like to swim with the pigs some time (nope, there’s no hidden meaning or sexist joke there at all – honest).

Pigs reproduce pretty fast, so I’m surprised there aren’t more of them.

Whatever was done, if it nipped half the herd they can make a living in Texas doing it!, cuz we have a pig problem, yes we do.

I don’t think that the Bahamas would be interested in an infusion of any of our wild pigs though, unless they want to make the beach un-safe for swimming, lose crops and gardens and increase the customer traffic at local medical facilities.

I saw Swimming Pigs open for The Clash in ’84.

Pff. Necropsy it is.

I hate it when Drudge picks up a story and makes me look a low-effort buffoon.

I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your site.
It looks like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
This could be a problem with my internet browser because
I’ve had this happen before. Kudos
