#PunekarRants: A Pound of Flesh

In the year 1408 in a then small town of France named Pont de Larche, a female entered a young couple’s home to find their four month old child unattended. Without reason or hesitation, she proceeded to brutally murder the infant, an incident that caused quite the uproar among the townsfolk. Justice was swift and only a few weeks later, she was sentenced to death by hanging and true to the law of the land, was executed. Nothing I have said so far may come as a surprise to you but what makes this story noteworthy is that the female, quite literally, was a pig (yes, a farm animal).
