Watch: Pig Hunting with Monkeys

Think running dogs in Georgia is exciting? Imagine throwing monkeys in Mozambique.

 

Between the music and the absurdity of monkeys riding wild hogs, you would think this strategy would be more at home in a circus or rodeo than on the plains of darkest Africa. But this method of procuring pork seems to be time-tested and popular among the hunters of Mozambique. The monkeys don’t just ride the hogs; they corral them for the hunters to come along and net/spear the pigs.
