Pigs are Smart

New findings on pig cognition have been published in the current issue of Animal Behaviour. Researchers present evidence that domestic pigs can quickly learn how mirrors work and will use their understanding of reflected images to scope out their surroundings and find their food. Also pigs have shown to be the quickest of animals to learn a new routine, from jumping hoops to play videogames with joysticks, and more. Not surprisingly, they are also slow to forget.

Science is helping us understand how wonderful pigs are. However, when it has to do with industrial agriculture, pigs are no more than simple commodities, who suffer unimaginable pain and fear in factory farms. Hopefully, when more people learn that animals are smart in their own ways and that they suffer in many ways like us, they will decide to leave them off their plates and instead transition to a compassionate plant-based diet.
