Hello,looking for information on pigs .further to our last talk , if this guy got on the wrong side of the drug barons and they decided to dispose of him by feeding him to a group of pigs , how would they do it .thanks.

Hi again

You may be interested in reading about the Canadian serial killer Robert Pickton who did exactly that. See

It would seem he dismembered his victims but that may not actually be necessary to achieve the desired effect, a large group of pigs would be able to eat an intact body if the were given long enough.

Wow that story was something else
Glad they caught him. How would the guy in the picture be put in with the pigs.

Indeed - very nasty, thankfully not something that happens often. He could really be put in however it was most fitting for the story, it wouldn't really matter. He could be thrown into the pen whole, or dismembered into pieces. Either way the pigs would eventually eat pretty much everything. In cases where this has happened in the past just small bits of bone, teeth, dentures and scraps of clothing were the only traces of the victim if they were not found for some time.

How many pigs would be needed to do the job

Hard to say really, but the more pigs there were, the more completely and quicker the body would be eaten. It also depends on their size. I would think about 20 large pigs could do it.

I see.. when they dumped him in the pen with the pigs he was face up. Were would they start to eat him .

Well they could start anywhere, probably the arms/legs then working inwards
