Jogging Pigs Experiment

In 1980, an experiment at Arizona State University studied the effects of jogging and high-fat diets on pigs.

The pigs ran around a field as a grad student ran behind them, wielding a two-pronged fork for encouragement.

According to a follow-up in the NY Times, the researchers found that diet was more important than exercise for keeping the pigs healthy.

OK, the pigs went to slaughter at the end of the experiment. What happened to the student?
