"It is hard to underestimate the significance of the pig for Jews, and Daphne Barak-Erez's book shows it to be a delightfully apt way to get at the fascinating maze that is Israeli politics."

The shift away from traditional pig farming to large-scale intensive methods has resulted in significant concerns for the welfare of millions of pigs throughout the world...

In much of the world, pregnant sows are confined in metal crates or cages. They act like prisons, limiting the sows movement so that she cannot even turn around.

Inquisitive young pigs are often kept in barren, crowded conditions on slatted concrete floors without straw for bedding or rooting.

Around the country, no one really knows how to handle wild pigs. They’re as smart as they are destructive , able to breed much quicker than we can hunt them down. Florida and Texas are now dealing with hundreds of thousands of wild pigs — other states aren’t far behind. Michigan, with feral pigs numbering less than 3,000, wanted to head off the problem early.

In late 2011, the state’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) drafted up legislation some might call, well, indelicate. It outlawed the possession of any Sus Scrofa  pigs — in theory these are wild boars, descended from a proud European bloodline. But in practice, all pigs, domestic and wild, descend from Sus Scrofa . Wild pigs and domestic pigs have been crossbred for centuries; distinctions can be fuzzy.

In a declaratory ruling for the Michigan Animal Farmers Association, the DNR released a nine-point list of physical characteristics held by wild pigs. Among other things, it says wild pig hybrids can exhibit 1) “either curly or straight tail structure,” 2) “either erect or folded/floppy ear structure” and 3) have coloration that may be “solid black; solid red/brown; black and white spotted; black and red/brown spotted.”
