"30 Days Without An Accident"

The piglets are given food in their trough by Rick.

"Infected"

As walkers build up along the fences, Rick and Daryl drive to the field as Rick plans to feed the piglets to the walkers in order to distract them long enough for Glenn and Sasha to reinforce the fences with large wooden beams.

When Rick is burning down the pen, Carl remarks that maybe they caused the disease. Rick replies, "or we gave it to them."

Death

Killed By

When the fence starts to give way, Rick decides that they will kill the piglets by slashing the sides of their bodies and leaving them for the walkers, while Glenn and Sasha repair the fence.
