That's not my pig,, No sir,,,

OK, we have covered the food beat and we touched on the pigs in Maya Beach (real live ones, not those walking upright.)
Heres a little known law that was found by one of our readers that we all should be aware of.

33.-(1) Any owner of any pig found tied, straying, burrowing or wallowing in
any public road shall be liable to a fine of one hundred dollars.

(2) It shall be lawful for any road supervisor or police officer to kill, by
shooting or otherwise, any pig that he may find so tied, straying, burrowing
or wallowing in any public road.

But what of the pig? Who gets the pig?
Granted, this should be posted inside my Pub Crawl review that is upcoming, but I have included it here as well. Just to keep everyone informed of the law. Ignorance is no excuse!

And yet another farm mystery was solved, by me, yesterday as I drove past the Condo’s del Santo’s.
Why did the chicken cross the road?
Because that big ass turkey was chasing him! Big tom turkey chasin that cute little hen,, I’d run too!!! I damn near smooshed ‘em both tho. Probably illegal as well.

And I encourage you all to watch this video. It explains some things I never understood from the late ‘60’s.

Way back when we had an absent landowner next door to us who had a herd of cattle. They were famous for doing "break-outs" and heading down our road to graze on all of our nicely mowed weeds and attacking the flowers. After he had been asked a couple times nicely to fix the fence (naturally no response) the cattle escaping war escalated. The result was the the neighbors finally got feed up, had a member of the sheriff's department show up to witness cattle at large and a shotgun was produced and BAAAMMMM.
One cow loaded onto a trailer and headed to the butcher shop to become burger for neighbors.

Word must have travled down the dead cow grapevine because the next day the neligent cow owner showed up raising hell about the demise of his cow. Going to sue, etc., etc.,. When we mentioned the fact that a member of the sheriff department was there while the animal was dispatched to animal heaven the dire threats disappeared to be replaced by a weekend of fixing the fence which was the original request.

Ground beef was the food of choice for months on the street.
