Oynk: Kosher Bomb Sniffing Hogs

Former Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu and Kiryat Arba’s Chief Rabbi Dov Lior both offered Rabbinic endorsements to test wild pigs for use in bomb detection in Israel. The pig, which is considered impure according to Jewish law, make for excellent sniffers. One kibbutz in Israel is already producing bomb sniffing-pigs. The initial question was posed to the Rabbis by the Gedud HaIvri, a volunteer group in Israel that deploys canines and dog handlers to help sniff out Arab terrorists. A spokesman from the Gedud HaIvri told IDF Radio that pigs might be used for bomb detection if they prove to be more effective than dogs. (c/o Voice Of Judea)
