Devouring - example

I saw a trough and in it was some foul smelling rotten food. I wondered about it and then I realised it was food for pigs or other animals. However, I wasn't sure that even they would actually eat it. Some pigs came along and spied the food in the trough. As soon as they got wind of the food in the trough, that was it. They devoured everything. It was incredible.
