Uncertain deaths of pigs in Bahamas has left everyone wondering!

V Alfred Gray, the country’s Minister of Agriculture and Marine Resources has issued strict orders that from now onwards, people will be able to take photographs and see the pigs swim, but will not be able to feed them anything.

Encompassing 700 islands and more than 2,000 small cays sprinkled across the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, The Bahamas lies only 80 kilometers from Florida. When beach lovers dream of the perfect stretch of powdery sand, lapped by seas in sublime shades of blue, they’re probably dreaming of the Bahamas.

Once a heaven for pirates and Loyalists, the tropical paradise is moving towards becoming the deadliest place due to mysterious wave of deaths recently striking Big Major Cay, the uninhibited Bahamas Island famous for its tourist-friendly swimming pigs. Up to half of the pig colony died, and the bodies were tossed into the sea, giving rise to some explicit cause of death.

Wayde Nixon, a local, who brought the pigs decades ago claims that huge tourist influx, could be the cause of death, as there is unrestricted access to pigs, and visitors have been seen giving the animals junk food, riding on them as well as giving booze to them. The death toll may be up to 10, which leaves eight or nine of the famous swine remaining- only a handful of which are adults.

A lot of stories are also circulating thus making it unclear, as to what the exact reason behind such a heinous crime might be. One version of the story claims that sailors left them on the beach briefly, intending to come back to cook them. Another story says that there was a shipwreck and the pigs swam to safety and made a home. None of this is true, but we’re going to stick with that because there is an immediate and urgent need to go to the depth of the issue.

Whatever measures are taken, major concern is how today’s human can be so heartless and ruthless to drive such lovely creatures directly to death itself. A red alert has again struck the whole world regarding safety of marine life. It’s our responsibility being humans to nurture each and every creature on this earth.
