That should be easy. Most any poison that does not harm in low dosage
should do the trick as you feed the lethal dose (mg/kg) times the
weight
of the pig (kg) while a human would usually only eat something
like 250 g
of the pig, which contains roughly 1/400th of a lethal pig dose.

How about nicotine. Suffocating the pig with laughing gas would
be nicer, though
and have absolutely no effect on humans. Others mentioned
caffeine or ethanole
- sound good, too, if they work.


That, OTOH, appears somewhat difficult as you would need to
administer a rather
huge dose to the pig if a human were to die from eating 250 g pig
and still have
the pig live long enough so the poison get's spread in it's body.
Maybe curare or
other nerve agents can accomplish this, as it relaxes all muscles
so the pig
suffocates, but the heart remains beating. Or maybe there is a
slow acting or
catalytic poison.


What is the background of your questions? Do you want to
slaughter a pig with
poison?
