Bringing Home the Bacon - How to carry a live pig from a pole

Three men carrying a live pig hanging from a pole in Bontoc, Philippines (Luzon). This is the preferred method of transporting your pig (especially when still alive) along the edges of rice fields where there are no roads. Though the "bringing home the bacon" phrase does seem to fit, I don't remember ever eating bacon in the Philippines. Certainly we ate pork (lechon baboy), but not usually as bacon.
