I Couldn't Make This Up......




I'm back with another "hog" story from the cousins. You may remember the 3 guys and a boar story from weeks ago. I linked to it if you missed all the excitement.  At that time I forgot my camera but this time I had it.  Take a look at this wild hog.  You are looking at 170 pounds of very disturbed hog.  He was not happy. Just look at the frothing mouth ...... not happy one bit!
The cousins (my cousins who are brothers) had somehow managed to get him into their trailer to transport to the town market.  By the time I walked over to the pen, the cousins were breathing heavily and celebrating with high fives and beer.
They were laughin' and reliving the event when suddenly the hog charged the trailer, scaring the living daylights out of cousin #1.  Sorry, no photo of that one.  Beer went everywhere and cousin #1 managed to knock into cousin #3 spilling his beer.  Cousin #2 was choking with laughter when the hog charged again, teeth slashing and tearing into the metal of the trailer, bellowing and squealing something awful.
With that, the cousins took to colorful language, more rounds of beer so I decided to depart.
Cousin #1 told me later that the hog brought a pretty penny.  I just happy that the critter is gone because if he were to get into my garden ...... let's just say I'd have to take a dim view of that situation.

Who is buying the hogs & why?

While I have never had pork, I can only imagine that wild pork might taste "gamey." (& not in a good way.) & If that is a boy, I have heard that the testosterone can make the pork taste pretty awful too.

That is one mean AND ugly-looking hog! I'd not want him in my garden or anywhere nearby, for that matter.

Enjoy your blog ! I have to ask...is that a wild hog ? - that they caught? We don't have anything like that in North Dakota- so I don't know anything about them.
