Thank for your previous help . is it true that pigs are supposed to be very clean animals , but it is just down to how us humans house them that makes them dirty , onto the guy being eaten. how and were would the pigs now start to feed on him from the belly down wards .thanks

Hi again

Yes pigs will normally try to toilet in one area separate from their eating and sleeping areas, however in commercial farms they do not always have the space to be able to do this. Pigs also like to root around in soil to look for insects, roots etc and wallow in mud pools (to keep cool).

They could really start anywhere and feed however the body parts were presented to them, they can only swallow fairly small amounts at a time so they would need to bite off pieces little by little then knaw at bones to break them down.

Great information. How and were would they start on the are in the clothes ,would they eat any of it?

Well yes the clothes may be inadvertently shredded and ingested. Bits kay be found in the pigs faeces.

Thanks for your assistance. Could one of the pigs take the whole of the bulge in the front of the speedos into its mouth and consume it .if the speedos tore and came off in one go would the pig just swallow it down whole with the meat.

Yes it probably could. It would need to chew up any larger pieces before swallowing though
