It is being reported (source) that a virus, which is deadly to piglets, is spreading like wildfire across the United States. Right now it has only been identified in about 199 sites in 13 states but the number was doubled to that amount in a single month. Of course, no one knows how or why it is spreading but it is lethal and kills from 50 to 100 percent of the piglets infected with it. It is very similar to a strain of the same virus that has run rampant in China beginning in 2010 and that has killed one million young porkers since then. I can only see that as making the price of several of my favorite foods (bacon, pork ribs, pork chops, pork tenderloin and ham) go sky high.
If this winds up being spread by someone purposefully, I almost hope they coat him in pigs blood an roast him until well done and crispy.
All the best,
