This Was a Real Thing: War Pigs! http://johnfitzgerald.net/2016/10/03/this-was-a-real-thing-war-pigs/ Mon, 03 Oct 2016 16:09:57 +0000 http://johnfitzgerald.net/?p=654 Continue Reading ]]>
War pigs. A real thing.

War pigs. A real thing.


This has got to be the greatest opening line for a Wikipedia entry:

“War pigs are pigs reported to have been used in ancient warfare as a military animal, mostly as a countermeasure against war elephants.” (Source: Wikipedia)

And here I thought Ozzy Osbourne came up with the name “War Pigs” all by himself.

So, war pigs. Horrifying, yes. But possibly necessary?

I mean, how else are you going to counter the enemy’s war elephants?

Historical accounts of incendiary pigs or flaming pigs were recorded by the military writer Polyaenus[7] and by Aelian.[8] Both writers reported that Antigonus II Gonatas’ siege of Megara in 266 BC was broken when the Megarians doused some pigs with combustible pitch, crude oil or resin, set them alight, and drove them towards the enemy’s massed war elephants. The elephants bolted in terror from the flaming, squealing pigs, often killing great numbers of their own soldiers by trampling them to death.(Source: Wikipedia)
