The original 5th and 6th commandments read as follows:

5. No animal shall drink alcohol.

6. No animal shall kill any other animal.

When the situations change, however, the commandments change to fit the desires of Napoleon and the other pigs.  The new commandments read as follows:

5. No animal shall drink alcohol to excess.

6. No animal shall kill another animal without cause.
