Pig Imprisons Woman in Home

I love reading Stephen King. I especially loved Pet Semetary. Church…he still wanders in my nightmares when I sleep. So when I saw this story, I immediately thought of Mr. King and his demented mind.
This real life story mimics his novel, Misery, but with a twist. No, this time it’s not Annie that is holding someone hostage, but rather, Misery Bruce, the pig, that is keeping its owner captive.
Let this story be a cautionary tale to those of you who like to bring home the bacon.
A RUNAWAY pig with an huge appetite for destruction and bananas has been terrorising a small community near Uki in northern New South Wales.
The one-year-old porker has virtually reduced 63-year-old Caroline Hayes to a prisoner in her own home, bailing her up inside the farm house until she has fed him, and fed him, and fed him.
When The Courier-Mail visited, Ms Hayes relied on dozens of bananas to placate the hungry porker.
She keeps feeding him bananas? If she really wants him to leave, all she needs to do is pull out the pork loin. Trust me, he won’t be around for long.
“[H]e gets really aggressive when you don’t feed him and I have been terrified at times, because it hasn’t been safe to leave the house.
“I went to the farmers markets last week and brought him back 300 avocados and 10kg of peaches and it was all gone in half an hour,” Ms Hayes said.
What’s with the avocados? Oh, Bruce likes guacamole.
Neighbour Virginia Cowlard said the pig had to go.
“He causes so much damage,” she said. “Whoever released him has been really irresponsible.
“He needs to have a home or he needs to go to piggy heaven.”
I love it when they go to piggy heaven. It means more food for me.
