Don't Let These Little Piggies Fool You!
They would have grown up to be destroyers, but they accidently met their fate in a very large puddle of water. We were holding the three grown wild hogs for some men and over night one sow gave birth. The next night it came a gulley washer (hard rain) and the Mama dug a deep hole in the middle of the pens. Evidently she was making a place so she could lay over the babies to protect them but instead it filled with water. Only one lived and John's daughter took it to raise until it started to be mean so she gave it away. Wild hogs do a lot of damage to crops, even the bottom of fences, and will eat small animals. This is an old picture I ran across. We don't trap wild hogs any longer.
