Edwin “Louie” Deason got 90 days in jail for stabbing a pet Vietnamese pot-bellied pig.
Prosecutors pinned the crime on Deason solely based on his drunken, belligerent comments to sheriff’s deputies. One deputy testified Deason was covered in blood and had pig feces all over him when he said, “I cut it, so what?”
Assistant State Attorney Cynthia Simpson emphasized that even if slaughtering the pig for a meal, it was not being done quickly and painlessly.
If you think farm animals are slaughtered quickly and painlessly, think again.
