He says they need a real pig rather than a pretend one because he just about got killed when he was pretending to be the pig.

This episode happened in Chapter 7.  The hunters had been out hunting a pig and they almost got one.  Unfortunately, they let it get away.  So when they came back, they were still pretty pumped up and were also pretty frustrated.  They started dancing, showing what had happened.  Robert got in the middle and pretended to be the pig.  They started jabbing him with a spear and actually hurt him.

So he says they need a real pig so they can actually kill it.
