Pig's Slaughter

HERVAS, SPAIN - JANUARY 11: (EDITORS NOTE: Image contains graphic content) Once the burning of the pig's skin is finished, they scrape it to make sure all the fur has been removed 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.
