Bacon Today reader Joakim Troëng alerted us of a breaking news story out of Scandanavia today.

An estimated 500 pigs were in an Edenberga, Sweden barn when a possible lightning strike ignited the structure. Approximately 250 pigs died in the blaze and at least 100 more were taken to receive emergency medical attention. A sad day for the bacon-loving world indeed.
