Hungarian Mangalitsa

Photo apparently by Greimann or Kappa.

The 2009 Mangalitsa Festival is taking place. There's some nice photos and a post (in English) about it here.

It has a link to a good description of a pig slaughter event in a Hungarian village:
The email asked if we'd like to "participate in a real, traditional, HUNGARIAN VILLAGE PIGKILLER-ACTION!", and sweetened the deal by adding that "the pig is sentenced to death, the bus is ordered, and the pálinka is cold already." Far be it for us to turn down an entire day of homemade booze and blood-spattered gluttony, we signed on immediately.
