Road-trip reading: Pig wit

My dear friend Heather, who works with Meatpaper magazine, alerts me to Ian Frazier’s 1974 article on wild pigs.

A maker of fences in the nineteenth century advertised a new kind of fence as being “bull-strong, horse-high, and pig-tight.” In fact, as regards pigs, few fences ever are.

Previously, everything I knew about wild pigs and their ability to outwit men and their fences I had learned from Fup, by Jim Dodge, a classic about pigs, fences, ducks, rotgut and transcendence.
