If you owned a pet pig could you still eat PORK?

Getting my pet pig next week (was supposed to be tomorrow). I was half way joking when I told my DH that I probably wouldn't be eating pork anymore.
Would you if you had a pet pig?

Geez, now what category? Food or Pets lol! Pets it will be

  • Yup! I would fatten him up with a whole lot of goodies and then I would have a little Hawaiian hottie turn the pig so it won't burn....oh shit!! Oh I see its a pet!! lol

    Yes...but don't tell your piglet you might be eating his/her family member or cousin! LOLI have had friends that owned a few little ( BIG ) pigs as pets and still ate bacon and ham....and had pork chops. 

    One pig was named Petunia and the other Pork Chop....they'd say...hey pork chop...we're eating other white meat tonight! 

    Good thing they did not understand them of course...or much less care. 

    I'm sure they'll be fine if you decide to still eat pork! barbecuing

  • I wouldn't eat my pet, but yes.

    Answer by ImNewHere at 4:10 AM on Apr. 1, 2011

  • We raised a few pigs over the years and yes some more or less became pets. Could I eat them? Oh Yes! If that is the reason that they were meant then yes but if bought specifically for pets then most likely no.

  • Well I do not eat pork as it is. One of my employees gets a "pet" pig every year and for months and months they fatten it up, then for new year's every year, they do a big outdoor pork roast. Poor pig. I've always wanted a pet pot belly pig.

    Answer by ABPeterson at 6:24 AM on Apr. 1, 2011

  • Yep, I've owned a pig before and I still love pork.

    Same goes with cows. I had one of those too, and I still love steak.
