Pig Slaughter

Dr. Phil Vogelzang sent me some photos he took at Mosefund's event. Here's photos showing the slaughter of a small pig. The pig became dinner that night and provided meat and fat for the next few days.

In the top photo, the pig's brain gets destroyed by a bolt gun.

Brain dead, the pig gets bled out. The human pumps the shoulder to help get all the blood out of the pig.

The pig goes into the bathtub to scald off the hairs.

People seemed squeamish with the first pig. As the day wore on and we killed more and more pigs, people got used to it. Bob del Grosso has photos and videos from the same event.
