Cruel Children Drown Pigs, 1911

From the Watauga Democrat, Boone, September 28, 1911

Last week, says the Kershaw Era, some children at the Haile Gold Mine drove a sow and 12 pigs belonging to Mr. W.U. Clyburn into the bungalow shaft at the mine. The shaft is about 300 feet deep and is about two-thirds full of water. Our informant says that the sow swam across the shaft five times in her frantic effort to save her young. Such heartless cruelty on the part of anyone deserves punishment of the severest type.
