Want to Swim with Wild Pigs?

Two things that really surprised me: One, the way the pigs come running out of the woods when they hear a boat approaching, and two, what good swimmers pigs are. We tend to think of pigs as overweight and lethargic, but these pork chops could churn butter, and they sure earn their paycheque. Thick-bodied and tone, the pigs must have a religion based around the ritual, the daily sounds of the motor and the appearance of foreign beings. When they hear the boat, they know it’s feeding time.
