Electric Cattle Prod (Jan, 1936)
Caption: “Get along little piggie, get along” sings this driver as he applies his electric driving rod. The piggie gets a jolt that moves him along on the double, but he is hurt in no way.
It’s Shocking, But Pigs Do Behave
Reluctant pigs and cows, and even stubborn mules respond to the touch of a new instrument designed to facilitate driving live stock up the loading chute.
The device made on the order of the familiar stock yards cane is tipped with two rounded metal projections which release a sharp jolt of electricity when applied to the hide of the animal. The startled creature though injured in no way, steps up the chute in lively fashion after one application. Pocket batteries supply the power.
