In the past, female pigs were used to hunt for truffles as the pungent odour that they emit includes a chemical almost identical to a sex pheromone found in male pig's saliva! Sows were difficult to control when a truffle was located and would often eat it! Today most hunters now use truffle dogs that are easier to control and will happily leave a found truffle for a food reward.
