Hogs visit again 1.21.10

In Dec. ‘09  I posted a short video of a Momma Hog and her 4 little ones as they crossed the drive coming into our yard.

Today they made a short visit. Just strolled in…looked around…evidently didn’t find any “leftovers” from the bunnies,  turned around and left.

If you saw the video, you can see that they have really grown up. All the hogs seem pretty smooth coated except this sow….she has a more “wild” look then the little ones. I like the “roached” mane she has on the back of her neck.  The runt of the litter is still the smallest one.


When I opened the door to get a short video…she really watched me. These pictures aren't very good..they were taken out of the video.


She made sure they were all safely in the woods before she took her eye off me and followed them.


This is the video the pictures were taken from. I think the whole family came in..but I didn’t get a good look to see if the other large black hog was another sow or the boar that has been coming in.


  1. I'm just amazed at the wildlife you have around you. Thank you SO much for sharing.

  2. Would the hogs have hurt you if you went outside?

  3. I don't think I would want to cross Mama and especially get between her and her babies.

  4. Nocholezmomma....I was outside when I took the picture and several others...they usually take off at the slightest sound. That's why I don't have any really good photos.

  5. Montana Girl....I think they probably are dangerous. They are big and wild. They normally come at night and I am very careful about looking around when I go out before daylight. I wouldn't want to corner one by the shed or a vehicle. Like any other wild animal..never trust or take them for granted.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
