The whole hog: Unpacking our love-hate relationship with the pig: http://ow.ly/NCcoS
Some people delight in them and prize their meat, others see them as practically taboo. Mark Essig's book explains why pigs inspire such divergent views

One day, we'll view eating pigs as what it is - murder.

Scroll over my thumbnail and you'll see why I think so. He's over 1000 pounds and is a big teddy bear. I also have a female about 700 pounds. 

Pigs are smart, funny, curious, social, love attention, affectionate, and capable of expressing so many "human" emotions from fear and terror to love and affection to fun and even a sense of humor. I don't know how much my 2 pigs understand, but I do know that they understand quite a bit more than my 2 dogs, and my dogs are relatively smart, among the smartest dogs I've had.

I don't eat meat, and my 2 pigs are why I quit. I love them as if they were my own children, and if people spent more time with them, they'd quit eating them too, I'm confident. Some people point to industrially-raised pigs and say they're mean, but so are prisoners who were otherwise civil before they were locked up. Like people, they have a range of personalities - my two are as dissimilar as night and day beyond the fact that they're both big teddy bears.

They're far more like us than unlike us, probably more so than any other animal I'm familiar with personally. 

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. - Winston Churchill
