Pied wild boar piglet, video


This 5 April 2016 video shows a pied wild boar piglet, near Vierhouten village in the Veluwe region in the Netherlands. Some wild boar piglets have unusual colours. Usually, as they grow up, they get the ‘normal’ wild boar colour.

Fortunately, this piglet does not have to fear being killed by Sarah Palin; she being busy killing wild boar thousands of miles away in Wisconsin, USA.

Unfortunately, this piglet does have to fear being killed by other hunters, including poachers, in the Veluwe region.

The Animals of Chernobyl | The New York Times

6 May 2014

Biologist Timothy Mousseau has been studying the lasting effects of radiation on the flora and fauna of Chernobyl, Ukraine.

Translated from Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad, 16 October 2015:

At the entrance of the Czech nuclear power plant Temelin this week suddenly the alarm bells went off. The super-sensitive equipment had measured radiation on one of the employees.

What was the case? The man had eaten the night before meat of a wild boar from the Bohemian Forest. Many of the pigs in the park are still contaminated with radioactivity from the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl in 1986.

#PigGate: New book says PM Cameron put his dong into dead pig‘s mouth at Oxford party – TomoNews

22 September 2015

LONDON — A new book is making some rather salacious claims about UK Prime Minister David Cameron‘s days at Oxford, including that he once placed his “gentleman’s area” into the mouth of a dead pig.

The unauthorized biography, titled “Call me Dave” was authored by Cameron’s former political ally, Lord Ashcroft, and journalist Isabel Oakeshott.

It includes the claim that Britain’s conservative Prime Minister “put a private part of his anatomy into a dead pig’s mouth” during an initiation ritual at the Piers Gaveston Society sometime before 1988.

The source of the claim, himself a member of the British Parliament, allegedly first publicly mentioned the debauchery during a business dinner in June 2014, and then repeated the accusation twice since then.

Lord Ashcroft writes in the book that perhaps the story is indeed a case of mistaken identity, but he continues, “… It is an elaborate story for an otherwise credible figure to invent.”

These are not the first stories that have been printed regarding David Cameron‘s active social life during his time as a student at Oxford, where he joined the famous — or infamous — Bullingdon Club, whose members were rather devoted to the consumption of alcohol.

The overall image that emerges from “Call Me Dave” is that of a spoiled rich kid enjoying the high life at Oxford, a kid who apparently did not imagine himself becoming Prime Minister of the United Kingdom some day.

James Delingpole, an Oxford friend of Mr. Cameron, also claims he and the future PM smoked marijuana as part of a cannabis appreciation Oxford group called the “Flan Club.” Mr. Cameron reportedly enjoyed getting high with Delingpole while listening to the rock band Supertramp.

Tory pig race trotting on after cancellation furore

Wednesday 23rd September 2015

A LOCAL Conservative party group promised yesterday that a fundraising pig race event will go ahead, despite reports it had been cancelled amid swilling allegations about David Cameron’s student days.

Dewsbury County Conservative Association (DCCA), in West Yorkshire, had planned a pig race fundraising evening next month but Facebook users yesterday received a message claiming it had been cancelled.

The group later took to Twitter to reassure people that the “exciting and unpredictable evening” would go ahead as planned.

DCCA’s initial cancellation followed the publication of extracts from a new book by billionaire businessman and former Conservative Party treasurer Lord Ashcroft, in which he alleged that Mr Cameron placed “a private part of his anatomy” in the mouth of a dead pig as part of a bizarre student initiation ritual.

But Dewsbury Tories later refuted the rumours, which had been spammed all over social media, by Tweeting: “The event is still going ahead — someone was a bit premature with Facebook.”

Racegoers will be provided with pulled pork sandwiches as part of the £7.50 entry fee.
