A British farmer thanked firefighters for saving her 18 piglets and two sows from a barn fire by giving them sausages made from the rescued animals.
"These poor piglets were no better off for escaping the fire only to be put back into it six months later after being subjected to the horrifying experience of the abattoir".
In a Facebook post, the Pewsey Fire Station wrote: "Exactly 6 months and 1 day since FF's Olsen and Richardson rescued 18 piglets from a farm in Milton we got to sample the fruits of our labour from that February night".
"I'm sure vegetarians will hate this", farmer Rachel Rivers told the BBC.

Heck, 21% said the sun goes around the Earth in a poll past year from NORC at the University of Chicago. Ten percent of survey respondents said they did not know whether to trust Trump or the news media.
"I gave those animals the best quality of life I could ever give until the time they go to slaughter and they go into the food chain".
And it seems her "thank you" was very well received by the firefighters.
"If anyone of our followers is having a bank holiday BBQ this weekend then check out these sausages, they are fantastic". "We recognise that this has caused offence to some - we apologise for this and as such have removed the post".
Rivers defended her actions saying that farming is how she made her living, and that rewarding the firefighters with sausage was appropriate.
"You do feel sad at the end of it. but to bring them down for [the firefighters] was a good way of saying "thank you".
