HERVAS, SPAIN - JANUARY 11: (EDITORS NOTE: Image contains graphic content) Once the animal has been killed, they use dry fern to burn the pig's skin in order to remove all fur/hair on January 11, 2013 in Hervas, Spain. It is a very common custom in Spanish villages for families to breed one or several pigs to later sacrifice them during the cold months in order to have a supply of meat and cold cuts for the rest of the year.
