Tosh Peters… [who] worked as a marine contractor, says the oil spill put him out of business. Peters says his claim has been “under review” more 60 days and told News 5 he can no longer afford to buy groceries and feed his family. …
“In the face of sheer desparation, with no other options, we’re going to have to end up slaughtering Wilbur and eating him,” says Peters. “It’s going to carry us through the winter.”
Peters loaded up his 400 pound pet pig “Wilbur,” and parked it outside the claims office.
“I’m just going to have to keep telling my kids it’s just a pig,” says Wilbur. “When you’re eating the kid’s pet, that’s pretty bad.”
