not for the faint of heart, young pigs' slaughter. Recorded in a country house's open yard near Cabra, S Spain. Sennheiser ME66 + MKH30, Shure FP24 preamp, Edirol R09 recorder. It was very hard for me to record this so I hope it's any use.
EDIT: I feel the need to clarify. This is the traditional way of killing the pig in Spanish (and many other countries) rural environment. It is based on bleeding (severance of the major blood vessels), which is not the norm in industrial slaughter houses nowadays. There stunning is applied previously to reduce suffering. I uploaded this to document a cruel traditional practice, for the sake of anthropological interest if you wish. Listeners can extract her/his own ethic/moral implications.

    I used a filtered version of this as a 'small whale's scream' in a student's production of "20.000 Miles Under The Sea" (battle scene between The Nautilus and some whales). I'll upload it soon.
