In 1386 in Falaise, Normandy, France. A pig  was sentenced to be 'mangled and maimed in the head and forlegs, and then to be hanged,' for having torn the face and arms of a child and thus caused its death.

As if to make the travesty of justice complete, the sow was dressed in man's clothes and executed on the public square near the city hall at the expense to the state of ten sous and ten deniers, besides a pair of gloves to the hangman.

At Pulse Ghana, we, however, do wonder what the verdict was in 1386 about eating "murderer".
