Don't overlook the last line of the article:

>The Mad Butcher - Sir Peter Leitch, who is a Waiheke resident - says he has never heard of the incidents and has yet to be targeted himself.

I once visited a farm and there was a bunch of piglets, some of them didn't have tails and the farmer said the only way to tell which piglet was biting off the tail of the others was to wait until only one piglet had a tail. Same vibe.

Once none of the piglets have any tails, is he even a problem anymore?

Once all the tails are gone and he's grown up, he'll then have a taste for new tail-sized piglets.

Joke's on him, because I've learned to eat off my own tail...and I'm a pig.

What is this 'only way', more like 'only cost/time saving way' - cause I don't want to pay someone to sit and watch, to see which piglet is doing it?! Something about the wording he used... makes me have lots of questions...

Pigtail priorities. You've got to set them right.

Pretty sure I have that line of audio burned into my brain forever.

> Sir Peter Leitch

I sure do, I didn't realize it until I read the line.

For reference Sir Peter Leitch founded a nationwide chain of butcher shops called "The Mad Butcher", with him as the radio ad voice acting out that character.

His knighthood is for "services to business and philanthropy".

Yeah that seems like exactly the backstory of a guy who puts sausages in mailbox for kicks
