Pig Out

Billy Lang of Birdseye, right, grabbed a soda from the refrigerator at Wilson Livestock in Huntingburg as a hog named Blackie roamed around the breakfast table alongside Mark Welp of St. Meinrad, left, Jim Dilger of Ferdinand and Louis Cary of Jasper, not pictured, on Monday morning as they ate sausage sandwiches. Dilger and Cary are Wilson employees and Cary decided to keep Blackie and another hog named Spot when they arrived too sick to transport two months ago. Cary nursed them back to health and has kept them at the yard ever since. He said he does plan to sell them in the near future.
