Were they jewish or muslim? ;-) It would take about one hunger pang to see if that new critter tasted good.

Hogs devastate quick. I imagine they woke up one morning and all their food was just gone...

Let's see........for dogs I have a Border Collie, a Pug and a Papillon. I think the BC would love chasing down a hog. But I'd be afraid the hog would kill my dog.
I have been running dogs on wild boar in Florida for 20 years and trap 2 boar per month. Every hog we have ever taken was dispatched with a .22 behind the ear. Ten years ago we lost a red nose pit to a boar. We were training a puppy as a new scent dog, thought bringing the hog dog would aid in training. Since we were not hunting we did not put a vest on the dog.
We spooked a boar that was about 85 lbs, he got into it with the dog and caught him with a tusk in the abdomen. Gutted the poor dog right on the trail. I emptied my .357 in the boar and then had to dispatch my own dog with a 9mm. They are dangerous animals when trapped or confronted. All the dogs wear vests now, regardless of what we are doing.

The spanish feral boar are now inter breeding with the russian feral boar. Those grow up to be some huge a** pigs! I saw a few pictures where they were over 800 lbs. I cant even imagine cleaning a pig that size, all that damn fat and I would bet they would be loaded with worms.
