" Two photographs of piglets and pigs which appeared in the International New York Times, part of a pullout in Malaysian Reserve published today, have been censored.

The first photograph of piglets accompanying the story “Demand grows for pigs raised outside” and a photograph of pigs in a farm on page 19 had their snouts blacked out."

You can read the full story here lol

Don't see what is so funny about this, you need to protect their identities.

Link is giving me 404 not found error. Anyway that is kind of retarded. Even if eating pork in Islam is prohibited, there's not reason to censor a photo of a pig.

I get it that you can't eat pigs, but can't even see their snouts?

Why is pork forbidden? It's not like they eat their own shit, like rabbits and chickens, and you can eat those, right?
