After giving that medicine, the pig dug it up to eat and the birds also ate it, it is said. And after that, the God said "you should plant it properly, I will give it only once". And when it was given again, again the pig dug and ate it. "You did not fence it properly”, he said ‘If you fenced it properly, the pigs that are digging and the chickens would not get it."’ As a result of this, Sese Langching said, it is necessary to prepare alcohol and sacrifice birds and pigs to give the spirit and 'pay respect to the spirit(s) by giving him all the best pieces of meat off the bone. And then we must first give the flesh of the fish to the spirit. Having given the first part – best part, then after we would eat.'
