Another pig's corpse is hanging next to it on the right. The man can be seen holding a large knife. The man is wearing overalls and a hat. On the back of the photograph is a note about the purpose of the slaughter: "For years, Bethune-Cookman's live stock [sic] department has furnished much of the meat for the boarding deparment." The photographer of the image is unknown.
