    You may not believe but in the olden days, keeping a pig for food is common in Manila. usually it is the laundry area that is converted into a small pig pen bound by wood. Sometimes there's even no roof. When the pen is ready, they will buy a piglet or 2 from the ambulant vendor. Yeah, that was life in Manila in the olden days, there are vendors selling piglets. Anyway, the piglets are left in the pen and fed with leftover food. As they grew up, the owner would be asking for leftovers from the neighbor. After 4 months in the pen, the pigs are ready for slaughter. Often, it is for a wedding or baptism of a baby. If there are 2 pigs, 1 is roasted and the other is butchered to be cooked in different dishes. Of course, the neighbors who supplied the leftover food will not be forgotten in the feast.

    But now, that is very rare because there is an ordinance against keeping pigs in the house due to the offensive odor of the pig's refuse. However, you can still do that makeshift pen if you live in the suburbs.

    Texas has a bunch of meat on the hoof -- WAAAAAAYYYYY too much. Feral hogs are totally out of control. Me, I say kill the dickens out of them. If the meat gets to be too much, start the canning and shipping. Texas game officials say that the problem is now such that hunters could never kill enough hogs to even begin to solve the issue.

    HogStop is a product that attempts to interrupt wild hog reproduction. It's some sort of contraceptive for swine.

    Here's a video on a hog-hunting tournament:

    I worked on a farm back in the day, we had a old sow 7 feet long and 700 lbs. One day in the spring she decided to get out. she plowed over a concrete 4 inch post and was free. It took several of us to get her back into the pig pen. You have got to be very careful with animals breaking loose. You are responsible for all the damage that they can cause think car accident .
