Pig Sentenced To Death For Murder Of A Child

It had managed to maul a child and as a result the child died.

It was ordered that the animal be wounded on the head and legs before being hanged. Before being hanged, it was dressed in man’s clothing before being displayed in the public square.

The expenses for trial and execution were paid for by the state. During the trial the pig had the right to legal representation and witnesses were called to give evidence.

The pig was in the end sentenced to death because it was likely to reoffend.
