After a time, the pigs fought again and yes, the earless pig bit the right ear off the other pig.
Not knowing what to do, they discussed cutting one of the pigs tails off. Agreed. Again, the pigs fought and both ended up tailless.
Then, one brother suggested they cut one of the pigs hind legs off.
Finally after much thought, the other brother said, "that is just too inhumane. How about we say the black pig is yours and the white one is mine....
