I was perusing the Doctors Foster and Smith catalog that came in the mail yesterday and was particularly disturbed by these "pig snooters" dog snacks that you can buy in a six-pack for your pet. I suppose that eating a snooter is really no different than eating a hot dog, except that if hot dogs looked like this, you can bet that Oscar Meyer would go out of business. We humans like to be in denial about our food.
I'm also no big fan of pig ears or cow hooves, but the snouts in the measuring scoop - as if you'd want a bagful - just seems wrong. I guess if you're going to kill Babe, it's better not to let any part of him go to waste.
