On This Day In Canadian History....

1859 - A pig owned by the Hudson Bay Company breaks into potato patch of American farmer, Lyman Cultar. He shoots and kills the pig which nearly triggers British-American war over ownership of one of the San Juan Islands which lie between Vancouver Island and Washington State in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Known as The Pig War, the pig was the only "casualty" of the war, making the conflict otherwise bloodless.
