Well, I checked and my kid says none of her friends down there have seen any hogs or heard a single thing about anyone in the area being tormented by them.

If they were on that man's property for the newscast (which I assume they were,) and he's been there 30 yrs, my guess is that he's in a less populated and less fenced in area. Most of the homes in there are much, much newer than 30 yrs old. Probably more like new-10 yrs.

Been staying with a friend off the next road down - Sienna Ranch something-or-another. I don't think anyone here has come across them yet.

In addition to feral hogs I read that some true wild European boars, including some especially large and vicious ones from Russia have been imported into North America and intentionally released into the wild.

These can interbreed with ferals ( unless they kill and eat them first ) so wild/feral hybrids will be out there.

Which Hannibal Lecter book/movie was it were the wild hogs were part of the plot? From Sicily were they? Dangerous animals.

If their genes stick around in the wild population until the beginning of the next ice age they will have a good time for 100,000 years.

One cannot unsee something once seen. Posting of this photo has therefore become part of our collective unconscious ( for who could hold such an image in the conscious mind? ).

Yea and verily I say unto you please refrain from posting further such images without a warning in the title. How can such things exist?

Maybe since BRU's in town, he could help out! And C5silverbullet, he's a big boy, he should be able to wrestle them down.

I'll send my son in law and his brother. They just shot a few hogs a couple of weeks ago. This one they estimated to be about 400 pouds. They called him Hogzilla.

I think you just missed her because she was hanging out with the other critters.
