Those of you who follow my facebook page know that we have had a wild hog running around the neighborhood doing damage lately. Last week I let the dogs out in the dark and then realized they were out of the back yard, after taking a better look, I found this:
Since that is pallet wood, I knew we had a fairly large hog. Those boards don't break easy.
Since then every time I walk the dog I see the hog tracks but we hadn't gotten a look at the hog until today. I wish I had a camera then but we were out walking Juliet and Scooter. I had Scooter and we had just started our walk when the hog came out of our yard so I snatched him up and put some distance between us and the hog. I am pretty sure it was a big sow. I saw no tusks. It was a big red sow probably at least 250-300 lbs. She went on into the woods and didn't bother us.
The reason for the hogs coming up from the lake (we have a lot more rabbits too), is the cutting of the trees that I told you all about. We walked down there today to see it since they weren't working and Phil took some pictures.
We looked up hog hunting here in GA and apparently we can kill it if it is on our own land. She has made a big wallow on the front lawn so her days may be numbered. It is not like she can go back down by the lake after they finish cutting all the trees.
