Yesterday’s answer:

a.      Pigs

They [the Savage family] went fishing in an old leaky boat. One had to bail to keep from sinking while the other fished. The crickets were so thick that the wind blew them into the lake, then the fish wouldn’t bite. They would gather the crickets and take them home so their mother could cook them and feed them to the pigs.
