In case you were worried about the plight of those poor piggies yesterday let me assure you that no porkers were hurt while shooting these pictures.Stunt doubles– that are very good at holding their breath for long periods of time — were used in the canned ham sequence.
an excape was planned and executed!!
After the revolt the pigs packed up a picnic lunch and headed off to the beach.
So hopefully that answers all the questions about swine abuse you might have. All the pigs are happy and healthy** and eager to go to a new home at the end of the month.
