As children make transitions throughout their life, they can determine what kind of person they want to be. They are given the frame work from their parents or parent figures, but ultimately they have to make choices that will determine who they become. As children grow up their parent figure won’t always be there to tell them the right choice to make or how to act, but they can use what their parents have taught them to think about those choices. The actual choice which is all that matters is up to them to make and even if they make the choice that their parents had taught them to make they still made it and therefor are creating their own identity. The author of “Babe the Gallant Pig” uses a pig and a dog as the child and the parent figures to show the dynamic on how children are responsible for creating their own identity and why they are forced to do it with little help from their parents.
Less complex of a character than Perry Smith, Dick Hickock undoubtedly deals with conflict in the latter part of his life that causes his mental state of mind to become impaired. Hickock, unlike Smith, endures a fair childhood. He is born into a “semi-poor” home, in which his parents rarely fight (Capote 277). Indeed, he respects his parents, and in turn, they prove loving toward him throughout his life. Involved in copious sports and attaining mostly A’s, his future seems bright. However, with no real money to pursue a college education, he turns toward the workforce. At his second job, he is involved in a car accident, which leads to the ruin of his mental state. Left for several hours unconscious, and with a “serious head injury,” he was not, as his father stated, “the same boy” (Capote 166, 294).
In 1996 in the Columbia River Valley a pair of teenagers came across a skeletal by the river. These remains belonged to the Kennewick Man who died 9,000 years ago. The skeleton of the Kennewick man is one of the most complete skeletons discovered from that era with over three-hundred bones. The skeleton sparked controversy with Native American tribes claiming him as their ancestor who should be properly reburied. The opposing side would be the scientists claiming he is of polynesian descent, meaning his remains should be kept in a museum. Forensic anthropologists analyzed the skeletal for signs of his descent. By the use of forensic anthropology the bones were examined for wounds that would show his life style, his facial structure, and signs of his diet which all gave evidence of him being of polynesian descent.

They are a medium to large sized animal with a short stubby snout, sported by a short neck. The body of a feral pig is rounded. They have small eyes, and large ears with points. Feral pigs are four legged animals with four toes of each foot. Their tail is generally curled or straight covered with hair and they are covered in fur and have very thick skin which helps to insulate their body temperature.
The stench of the hog waste is so foul that workers may quit working in a hog house and still reek months later. The smell even causes some people to collapse, Teitz explains.
Imagine waking up in the middle of a warm Texas night to the thundering sound of fences being annihilated by a cluster of swine, weighing in at a hefty 300 pounds each and armed with razor-sharp tusks. Within minutes, the rowdy pigs turn a beautifully manicured lawn into a scene fitting of the apocalypse, a yard with numerous piles of de-rooted sod, broken fence posts and mangled bushes. In the state of Texas, feral pigs are considered one of the most destructive species of animals ever introduced to America. The amount of destruction feral pigs produce on a yearly basis in Texas is alarming; almost half a billion dollars in damages to property and crops are estimated every year as a result of the pigs’ actions. Feral pigs are responsible for causing widespread agricultural damage, spreading diseases in the food supply, and harming the state’s ability to feed needy people with their meat.
A Pig’s Perspective is about one pig’s revenge on barbecue. A Pig’s Perspective is a very humorous personal story from Pollan. It is a tale of his pet pig, Kosher. Kosher escaped one summer day and followed the scent of a barbecue at a neighbor’s yard. He knocked over the barbecue grill and made off with the meat that was being cooked. His neighbor found the pig’s transgression very comical. Pollan suggests that the deed was the pig’s vengeance.
He looked down at his friends and family with a big piggy smile on his face. The pig began stomping around. He crushed their homes as he bounced around. He destroyed their fences and food crops. The pig's friends and family stared at him in horror as they watched him destroy their homes and all their belongings. They cried for him to stop, but instead, the big pig began stomping on them. He crushed their bodies under his gigantic hooves. The other animals screamed with terror as they watched their friends and family be murdered by their beloved pig. And if that wasn't enough, the pig began devouring their corpses. One by one, he killed and ate all of his friends and family, until there was nothing left but the old ruins of their homes. The pig finally settled down on some grass, satisfied and full and as big as can be. He finally has some time to relax after his long journey, and he accomplished all he wanted to do with his life. The pig was finally
Moses the raven is the Mr. Jones's favorite animal on the farm. He's always telling the other animals that there is an amazing place, and it's called …….. This mysterious place is where all the animals that are sick and dying go to……..The pigs didn't like Moses because they thought he was always lying. One day out of the blue Moses disappeared chasing Mrs. Jones. Several years later he just showed on the farm again once the battle of the windmill started. The pigs still thought that he was a liar. Once Moses started spreading rumors about Sugarcandy Mountain the pigs started making him pan an allowance of a gill of beer.(http://www.shmoop.com/animal-farm/moses-raven.html)
Based on the research conducted by the Forensic Anthropologist Chatters on the skeletal remains of the Kennewick man, he seems to be a European migrant. The man definitely belonged to the western hemisphere, as definitive characteristics indicate so. Furthermore, he could belong either to the east or to the west of the Atlantic, since forensic studies indicate that his diet was strongly composed of Anadromous fish – fish born in the sea and lives in fresh water, before returning to the sea to spawn. As the video “The first Americans-Part 1” mentions the European roots that the Kennewick man had, I would agree with the claims of the forensic anthropologist that the man had a European descent. The video also mentioned that Native Americans themselves

On the other hand the other animals were locked up in the barn and very mistreated; they were only fed leftover whiskey, milk, and apples.

Firstly, they were originally brought to the united from Asia and Europe as domestic pigs. While the time was passing through some of them achieved to run away or perhaps someone set them free on purpose creating an entire uncontrolled feral pigs population, they are excellent at the time of reproduce. They can produce until 8 babies per litter, also they are incredibly adaptable but obviously they prefer places with lots of water and spot where to hide, additionally, they are truly aggressive that can be highly chaotic to field yards, fences, and some other facilities.
Mother pigs spend most of their miserable lives in tiny gestation and farrowing crates so small that they can’t even turn around and forced to get pregnant over and over again, until their bodies can’t handle it anymore.. Males are either killed immediately, or castrated at a young age then kept only for their meat. Piglets, in general, are torn away from their mothers after only a few weeks, tails are chopped off, and the ends of their teeth are snipped off, then the spend days to weeks to months in cramped, crowded pens on slabs of filthy concrete until it gets decided what will happen to them.
