BBC Breakfast viewers baffled as they’re told to eat pigs to help survival rates

BBC Breakfast viewers were left rather confused on Thursday Morning after they were given information on how to prevent a decline in pigs across the UK.

Several viewers took to Twitter to air their concerns as many thought it was unusual to suggest that people should eat pigs in order to preserve them.

Journalist Fiona Lamdin was at a farm on Thursday morning.

She interviewed an events and account manager named Chris who spoke about the rarity of the pigs and how worried he is about their survival.

Chris said: "Well these pigs are Oxford Sandy and Blacks – any we are worried about these pigs like we are any breeds.

“The important thing is to remember that they were bred to meet human needs as like all livestock… so if you are thinking about food, well do think about eating later breed meat.”

Viewers were left confused by this and took to Twitter to share their views, one viewer said: "'To protect rare breed pigs we need to keep eating them' BBC Breakfast, you need to have a word with yourself."
