March 1 - National Pig Day
Three facts provided by PETA:
• Studies have identified that pigs use more than 20 oinks for different situations and that mother pigs sing to their young while nursing.
• Pigs enjoy music and playing games such as soccer and are big fans of belly rubs.
• When trained, pigs can learn their own names and sit for treats like dogs.
I learned about the smart, social and inquisitive nature of pigs through my research and I absolutely think they deserve recognition for their abilities and personalities. If you think cats and dogs should not be abused, slaughtered and eaten, perhaps you may want to consider giving intelligent farm animals a chance to live a life free of suffering as well. Cows and poultry have their own intelligence and social characteristics too, just look it up!
