    I believe the pigs are unjust for taking extra apples and milk. I think they are using their wisdom above the rest of the animals. The pigs are leaving other animals out and taking things for their own health while their directing the other animals what to do. This is not fair to the other animals. Especially the animals that are doing hard labor like the horses who might need the extra food. To me I think this is selfish and they should actually consider sharing with the other animal which makes them unjust.

    The pigs are unjust for taking extra apples and milk because they are using their intelligence against the other animals by putting themselves on a higher standard. The pigs are not concerned about the other animals but themselves and they command the animals to do work while they care about their own health. It isn’t fair that they animals are not getting any advantages because they are the ones putting in the most work by using their strength.

    No I don’t think the pigs are all about taking extra milk and apples for their food because when the Battle of Cowshed started they were there giving orders to other animals on the farm to attack. Maybe for all the hard work the pigs are putting in they should be able to take extra milk and apples in return.

    The Pigs are not being fair to just take extra milk and apples for their food because the other animals wont be able to eat. The pigs are being selfish and greedy, and because the pigs are taking over they feel that they can do and take everything.

    I think the Pigs are not fair in taking all the milk and apples. I say this because the horses which do almost if not all the hard work around the farm need the nutrients from the milk and apples. The pigs are barely there for example Napolean during the battle

    What the pigs are doing are not good because the pigs are threating Mr.jones and they know Mr.Jones will come back .

    Do you think the Pigs are just in taking extra milk and apples for their food? Why or why not?

    I think so because Squealer is trying to lower the feelings of the other animals into the pigs disliking milk with apples but they needed it in order to run down the farm. The pigs actually loved milk with apples. Squealer was saying to the animals that Jones might come back .

    Squealer has the other animals believing that the pigs disliked milk with apples but they needed it in order to run the farm. The pigs actually loved milk with apples. Squealer convinces the animals that Jones might come back if the animals did not give the pigs milk with apples as the pigs were head of the farm. So I think also because the pigs are clever more superior. So they think bigger.
