The swine has dodged the bullet. Self-preservation and self-defence the pig avoids the bolt at the abattoir. Her and her kind are bred to be eaten, a victim of genetic manipulation going back to her grandparents and much further beyond that. If released from captivity would the domesticated pig eventually reach its wild original state? Would it become a boar? An abstracted representation of a beast.
