There wasn’t a great detail of civil rights in the Middle Ages, and as it turns out there weren’t a great of animal rights either. So much so that they were even subject to human justice.


One such case happened in Falaise, France, where a pig attacked a child’s face who went on to later die from their wounds.


The pig was arrested, kept in prison, and then sent to court where it stood trial for murder, was found guilty, and then executed by hanging

Movie/TV Quote

"You shall not pass!"


The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)


Ian McKellen became a badass in old age thanks to his roles as both Magneto in the X-Men franchise and Gandalf the Grey/White in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In the latter, he's constantly defying expectations: His Gandalf is alternately goofy, sly, and terrifying. But when he faces off against the Balrog in The Fellowship of the Ring, he's just absurdly cool. "You shall not pass" is a feat of delivery, as it's McKellen's booming voice that makes a stand against the creature more than anything else. Listening to him, the room shakes.
