The Hidden Lives of Pigs:
Pig Mourns the Loss of his Close Friend

The Hidden Side of Pigs:
Pig Mourns the Loss of his Close Friend

Spot and Sientje lived together for 13 years and were very close friends. When Sientje died, Spot was forced to say goodbye to his dear friend. In this video we can see Spot demonstrating feelings of love and grief.

Pigs, like other animals, maintain life-long friendships based on trust, love and mutual care. However, not all pigs are lucky enough to have the chance to say proper goodbye to their friends.

In their terrifying final hours at the slaughterhouse, pigs hear the squeals and see their friends and family being killed, before meeting the same fate. The levels of stress and fear inside slaughterhouses and intensive meat-farms should not be experienced by any animal, and yet, that is the standard.

As Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson writes in his book The Pig Who Sang to the Moon: The Emotional World of Farm Animals:

"Pigs are gregarious animals. Like children, they thrive on affection, enjoy toys, have a short attention span, and are easily bored.’ He reports that when pigs were put into a small pen, as they are on most farms, ‘their world was instantly narrowed to each other, the food, and the sty, and as they grew, their world became smaller and smaller. The tedium of their existence soon became apparent: they were lethargic, exhibited ragged ears, had droopy tails, and rapidly acquired that dull-eyed glaze that swineherds associate with six- or seven-year-old breeding hogs."
