The poor girls this weekend got spooked pretty good by the same stupid pig that chased us out not too long ago - this time they were riding horses down the trail, and the pig ran out TOWARDS them at the same place, too! The horses spooked, crow hopped and did a 180 but they got them settled down pretty quick. Same time of day - in the morning around 10 am. Hubby and I found waller spots in the creek and several of the lower trunks of the trees are torn up with tusk marks. I didn't think pigs had 'territories' - I thought they were wanderers. Anyway, this little piggy's days are numbered. He's picked a fight with someone who doesn't plan to lose.
On another note, two pot-bellied pigs (pets turned loose) have been terrorizing and destroying property out near my mom's house in an older part of town. They've been chasing small children and pets and have been getting in garbage and tearing up landscaping. People see them all the time and the PD and animal control keep trying to catch them but to no avail. They put out a bulletin to the neighborhood telling folks not to try to catch them since they can catch and transmit rabies. All of the mayhem they are causing isn't good, but the whole situation itself is pretty funny if you ask me! That's a new one in my book.
I would be happy to sight that piggy in with my 243
when I get down there in June. Then we can have a big pig roast...mmmmmm!!
