David Lebovitz: Truffle Hunting
I always assumed that truffle pigs had a pretty miserable life. They spend all day looking for their favorite food, and as soon as they find it, it’s taken from them before they can eat it. The poor pigs have to keep finding them, but can never eat any.
This article claims that the human quickly takes the truffle and gives the pig a potato or apple instead, but I bet the pig still knows that it’s getting ripped off.
