Usually, it’s the other way around….
A pig killed a butcher at a Hong Kong slaughterhouse this week.
Police reported that the pig was shocked by the butcher with an electric stun gun but it then unexpectantly awoke and pounced on the butcher.
As the pig attacked the butcher his 15-inch meat cleaver fell on his foot causing massive bleeding which led to him bleeding to death.
This is as close to a "man bites dog" story as I've seen in a while https://t.co/sipDIxPzE2

The New York Post had more details on the bizarre story:
A pig appears to have got the ultimate revenge at a Hong Kong slaughterhouse — knocking over and killing a butcher with the cleaver about to be used on him.
Police told CNN that the pig had been shot with an electric stun gun at the Sheung Shui Slaughterhouse on Friday when it suddenly woke and pounced on a 61-year-old worker.
The swine knocked over his would-be slaughterer — who seemingly dropped his 15-inch meat cleaver onto his own foot.
Another worker found the butcher — named by local media as Cai — with the cleaver in his hand and his left foot bleeding profusely from the wound, police said.
He was rushed by ambulance to a local hospital, but was pronounced dead, the local reports said.
