PETA, upset over the pig killing, looks into criminal charges.
Angry about Michael’s killing of the pig during last night’s episode, which some have speculated looked like the pig was planted or drugged, PETA is “investigating the possibility of criminal charges” over whether or not “the producer of Survivor, Mark Burnett, and/or others acting for him, orchestrated this act by placing a tame pig on the scene.” CBS denies that the producers “orchestrat[ed] the pig incident.”
