Jack is obsessed with killing period. The pig is his first animal to conquer. Early in the book he was humiliated when he had a chance to kill the pig but didn't. He then becomes obsessed with proving his toughness and simply imposing his will on another living creature.

He was humiliated by something. I forget...hahahahahahahahahahaha.
