An older Darwin award nominee - revenge for the pig!

Pig Jig
2001 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin

(24 November 2001, Hungary) Two farmers were killed and a third was hospitalized with serious injuries after the men attempted to kill a pig with a homemade stun gun during a traditional Hungarian pre-Christmas slaughter.
One farmer electrocuted himself with the jury-rigged device during an unsuccessful attempt to knock out the pig. The elderly owner of the pig was so alarmed at the tragedy unfolding before his eyes that he suffered a heart attack and died.

The third farmer tried to come to the rescue of the first farmer by pulling the plug out of the socket. He was shocked, but survived.
