Flimsy Pens, Destructive Pigs

I saw these pictures of some Mangalitsa pigs in Slovakia, where they are trying to sell a boar.

You can see that the boar (center) looks very masculine, while the sows look significantly more feminine.

You can also see that although they live in a place that would normally be green and lush, they've destroyed all plants. There's not a blade of grass in there.

Finally, you can see that they are keeping them in a fairly flimsy and cheap pen. The pigs could probably dig out or break the fence if they really wanted to. So long as there's food and water in their pen, they'll probably stay in there. They aren't fussy.
