Spain’s pigs outnumber the human population for the first time, according to figures released by the country’s environment ministry, which reveal there are now 50 million pigs, 3.5 -million more than humans.

 

The figures show an increase of about 9 million animals since 2013 and there are growing concerns about the environmental impact of an industry that produced more than 4m tonnes of pork products and generated €6bn (£5.4bn) last year.

 

C'mon (or should I say, jamón) guys, this is a solvable problem!

When Muslims conquered much of the Iberian peninsula, the pig became a symbol of Christian resistance.

Lol, it was probably due the fact they would not steal pigs. :) Around here under Turks if you were a cattle farmer you had to pay taxes in the cattle. However if you grew pigs, you could pay it in money, since Turks did not want pigs. So people grew pigs in preference to other animals, sold them in Austria at a profit and paid taxes. First Serbian Uprising was initially financed that way.
