ISO - Quote on pig butchery. Very specific, Very obscure.

Ernie Diamond | Aug 31, 201107:05 AM     8

I had read a quote once on pigs and pork. I think that it was either in a John and Matt Lewis Thorne book or a book on Maine Eats. I am trying to find it with no luck.

The quote references a pig that has been butchered and is hanging in the barn. The author compares the animal to a canoe which hangs nearby. If I remember correctly, it closes with something to the effect of "Quiet and at peace."

It's really a remarkable quote but as I said, I can't find it. Any help would be appreciated.
