A Pig Once Started A War

The Pig War was started when a British infantryman shot a pig that was wandering on American soil. The local American militia responded by gathering at the border and waiting for the British to make a move. -Listiverse

Why’d the pig have to die? Did the British really hate pigs that much? The really sad thing is, that war lasted 4 months.
