In the rural areas of Tonga and the small villages the animals roam freely. It is not unusual to see a cow walking on the street which got tired of it's tether. But they were mostly chickens, dogs and PIGS which entertained me.
I love pigs and took plenty of pictures of them . I wanted to hold the sweet little new born ones but they were impossible to catch.
The pigs come home in the evening to eat and sleep when they hear their masters call which sounds like " baa" "baa" and "maa" "maa".
Ginger was quite a character

At certain festivities a ceremonial pig is slaughtered.The more honorable the person , the larger the pig.
This is the sad fate of the very large pigs. .Other than for ceremonial purposes they have no use since they are made up of mostly fat.
