A ccording to Wildlife Philippines, no protected habitat now exists for the wild pigs (AKA “Baboy Damo” in the vernacular). And fewer than 100 individual wild pigs remain, making the Filipino wild swine the most-endangered species in the world. Reports say that only a few of them survive in the presidential palace and Congress of the Philippines.


Seattle, Washington-based Filipino-American columnist Jesse Jose has described one of the remaining Filipino wild pigs in these articles:


“F” words, “N” Words, “C” Words; Bush Dodges Shoes Hurled at Him


Politics, Like Dust, Never Settles …


Arroyo Dispensation’s Legacy: “Pagpag” (AKA "Kanin Baboy") Meals for Poor Filipinos  


Ka Jesse Jose gives also the reason why wild pigs are nearly extinct in the Philippines. He says that they are the primary ingredients of “Adobong Baboy,” which is also the favorite dish of the Filipino First Gentleman and many Filipino congressmen and public officials. You can read Mr. Jose’s description of the “Adobong Baboy” in this article, Confession of a Crazy Columnist  


Once able to roam throughout the Philippines from Batanes Islands in the North to Basilan Island in the South, now very few wild pigs remain, as the pork barrel that they thrive on is being salted abroad by Filipino traditional politicians.


Officials of the Wildlife Philippines also said that there are very few remaining wild ducks in the country, except for some lame ducks in the presidential palace, in Congress and a few provincial capitals.


T he irreverent Filipino-American pundit Jesse Jose allegedly said that the wild duck is the preferred main ingredient for the “Peking Lameduck” dish. There are reports that the cooks in the presidential palace and in Congress serve the “Peking Lameduck” when visiting Mainland-Chinese and Taiwanese investors meet over lunch or dinner with the First Couple and their congressional allies, as they discuss “Lutong Macao” deals.


The Wildlife Philippines pro-active advocates said that people have to lobby the Filipino national leaders to put more teeth to the Endangered Species Act to create more habitats for the remaining “Baboy Damo” and wild ducks, who (sic) may become extinct after the May 10, 2010, national and local elections. # # #

LOLo Bobby

There are still plenty of wild pigs in Moroland since the Muslims don't eat pork at all, Kaso Madame Lame Duck had been sending more Porks in a barrel there to buy votes...that's adding more insult. to the injured broken penises. JJ of course you can write about Baboy Hussein who also used his pork barrel with salted pork to the tune of $1M, which he gave to his wife's hospital when he was senator. Baboy Hussein is of course a Muslim, too.

Yeah Bobby, right on, you are not the Mark Twin incarnate for nothing LOLo

Lolo Bobby,

Once again, thank you for the plugs of my stories. I've known many editors in my lifetime as a journalist, mainstream as well as Filipinos, but you're the BEST and the most knowledgeable. You're not only a prolific writer, but also superbly talented, and tireless in the many worthy causes that you've undertaken. People like you come only now and then, THAT they're truly rare and precious....

More power to you, Lolo Bobby and your publication. In the truest sense of the word, you're one heck of a journalist ... and a leader. And I thank God for people like you.

Jesse Jose

Lolo Bobby,

Let me extend my congratulations too for that satirical gem. And, believe you me that, when someone receives that kind of praise from Pareng Jesse, it's always true and sincere because he rarely does that sort of thing and does that only when someone is really well-deserving of the compliment. That's exactly the reason why I like Pareng Jesse. He is very frank when he speaks and devoid of hypocrisy and pretensions. After all, they didn't call him Jesseng Barako for nothing.
