A rancher in Morgan Hill, California, killed the wild pig and, when it was cut open for butchering, found that the bacon was makin’ an eerie glow. Specifically, the boar’s fat was a fluorescent blue, but the meat, blood, skin and everything was whatever color a boar’s insides are supposed to be.
One thought is copper poisoning, but there are no copper mines nearby and no other boars have ever been found there with fluorescent blue innards. Samples were sent to UC Davis to determine if it’s a bacterial infection or something else.
What do you think? Is nature trying to remind us that color really doesn’t matter?
