Another reason to kill feral pigs!

Recommended Posts

We had pigs as a teenager. They would try to knock me over when I carried their food to the feeder. Dad did not believe me till he saw them try. After that we loaded the feeder from out side the fence, as well as not enter the pen alone, I hated them.

When I was young I heard a couple of old timer tell about children falling into the pigpens and being killed. Don't know if that's true but pigs are animals that are omnivores and cannibalistic. I can imagine that if there's no loud noise to scare them they'll eat just about anything that hits the ground.

Long before I came along, my grandparents kept hogs on the farm. When I asked my grandpa why he quit hogs, he said he fell into the pen once while feeding them and the sow put her open mouth right up to his face. He said it was a quick decision.

There is a reason that folks have long maintained that it’s a poor choice to make enemies with a man who keeps pigs.

Ever read "Unintended Consequences"? The book pointed out that the best way to get rid of a body is to feed it to some pigs. Pigs are not only aggressive, they eat everything. Skin, bones hair, everything. At most they may find a few teeth in the poop. 

My Grandfather had pigs. He also had a bunch of kids and later grand kids. He made it a point to make sure we all knew to stay away from them.

I can understand a domesticated pig learning that you're carrying food and trying to get it. A feral pig going after a random person just strikes me as very strange. Maybe it was a domestic pig that got loose and went feral?  Pigs are a major problem in Texas, maybe they're running out of food?

When I was about 9 my dad and me went to a friends house and he had a sow with piglets, well they had went around the barn lot and like an idiot that hadn't been around hogs I climbed the fence and was about 1/2 way across when the friend hollered for me to get the heck out of the pen, about that time I heard the sow grunting, a 9 year old can run fast when needed. A side story a hunting partner shot a hog in the head with a .243 she went out of sight and he trailer her for 1,000 yards or more and said the heck with it, about 10 days late same hog came in and this time he shot her with a 7 mag and she went about 40 yards into the brush, she had little pigs with her btw. Well he decided to sit for an hour or so as he was deer hunting, when he started to get down he picked off a couple of the piglets and when he went to the sow, the piglets had eaten about a bowling ball sized hunk of meat out of her. They will eat ANYTHING!! As Troy Landry would say Chootem Jacob!!

Did anyone else notice the maple bacon stripes on the little pigs in the picture? My mouth started watering.
