    Fertility Goddess?
    Sounds like a better religion to me.

    The taboo separates ruminants from non-ruminants. Ergo, it isn't because specific animals were sacred to specific deities. Ruminants turn a resource - grass and forbs humans cannot digest - into meat whereas swine compete with humans for the same food. More difficult is the former Scottish taboo on pork products.
