Where Did Pigs Originate?

Answer

There is no clear record of where wild pigs originated. From historic accounts it appears that they were in a lot of areas. They were first domesticated in around 5,000 B.C in East Asia although use of pigs for food started in Thailand about 5000 years before that.
