Why would the Gerasene people beg Jesus to leave their region after He cast the demons into the pigs?

Luke 8:26-39

Mark 5:1 - 20

ESV - 1 They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gerasenes. 2 And when Jesus had stepped out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit.

The swine were more intelligent than the demons who entered them, the latter believing that they could find a new home in the animals while not being cast into the Abyss by Jesus. The swine had a different idea, and preferred death over demonic possession.
