Gus was a free spirit. He was born to roam.
At some point Sunday night Gus decided to continue his wanderings. He busted though the electric fence and the woven wire fence and decided to stand in the middle of Red Prairie road.
Where, he was promptly hit by two cars which were going pretty fast.
The cars were going fast, at night, in a rainstorm, on a narrow country road with blind corners. Gus was a mostly white pig standing in the middle of the only long straight stretch on Red Prairie Road.
Of course they hit him. Of course.... The only straight stretch on the whole road...
These was in the general area where Chronic Boy broke his back when the rabbit got loose in the car and sat on the accelerator and Chronic Boy's friends drove off the road and rolled the car.
There is insurance for the cars but not for the pig.
Gus was not salvageable for bacon or pork sausage.


  1. Irish landrace by chance? St. Paddy's eve...had the lad had a few? Was he out there shaking his fist at oncoming cars and shouting 'Erin go brat!'?

    Had the unfortunate incident occurred in Iowa, state law would allow the owners of the deceased pig to sue whomever had hit him. Learned that after a local elderly lady's Chrysler was totaled when she slammed into an a black angus steer at night on a rural highway.
