Wild Hogs

In Dec ‘09 I posted a video of a Momma Hog and her little ones….again in Jan ‘10 another Momma showed up.

Yesterday a Momma and the 6 little ones  ( not so “little” anymore")paid a surprise visit. 004cs

I doubt this is the same Sow. In the Jan video there were only 4 babies…and I think there were only 4 in the Dec video. 007cs

It’s possible this is the same Sow and I missed a couple but they usually stay in such a close group ..I doubt it. There are a lot of wild hogs running around here.

So far, they’ve just checked under the feeder and left…no digging in the yard…….…yet.


  1. That reminds me, I'm BBQing tonight.
    Nice shots!

  2. All right, the pigs are back. How fun to watch. Hope they stick with bird seed.

  3. I don't see any wild pigs here,(thank goodness) I like to see the ones you post, though. We have lots of critters, but no hogs!

  4. Hi Carol,
    Wow these are very impressive beast and I loved the video!! Well done.

  5. Nice photos! This one litter makes enough hogs for a herd. Do people hunt the wild hogs? I could see they could quickly become a huge problem.

  6.'s ok to hunt them...many of them end up in the freezers in this area. They do a lot of damage to the cattle grazing land.I actually put them to work one year by tossing corn into an area that had an invasive vine that was taking over everything. They really "rooted" it out..made a mess of everyting in the process but it was worth it.

  7. What a great way to get rid of invasive plants! Here we have a big problem with invasive plants and they are trying to keep the non-native invasives from choking out the native plants. No wild hogs to help out, alas.

  8. Wild Boar is a crop pest here too, but hunting them is not allowed, may be the populations fading. Seeing them in broad daylight is a rare treat for me. It's almost always at night they come wrecking havoc. I hope they remain gentle with your garden.


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.
