Thieves in Victorville, California appear to have seized the opportunity of a train making an unscheduled stop to steal 20 boxes from a train car. They later discovered that their daring crime had yielded 20 boxes of pigs’ feet worth $200.
I am equally surprised that 20 boxes of pig feet is only worth $200. I am not a pig feet connoisseur, but I was not aware that pig feet were so cheap. I suppose that it why pig bellies rather than pig feet became the market staple for traders.
Finding a fence for pig feet will not be easy. Perhaps pickled pig feet, but unpickled pig feet would appear a flat market. (I have never had a pickled pig foot, have you?). What is important is that if any of our regulars are approached in Victorville by a guy in a raincoat with pigs feet dangling inside, don’t buy. They are hot feet.
