Feral Hogs - Google it and see the scale of the problem in the US. They stroll through my yard from time to time, unperturbed. Never get near a Sow with her litter near by. She will react like a Grizzly Bear with cubs. The reports of what happens if you hit a big Boar at speed are accurate. Just near me, a guy on a motorcycle broadsided one at night. The Hog survived and fled the scene. The "pilot" of the two wheeled Hog did not.

Some years ago in Phoenix, a landing airliner hit a drunk man trying to play chicken with the aircraft. As I remember the aircraft was not damaged, but the drunk suffered substantially.

Feral hogs down here are terrible. I have been places where it looks like a bulldozer went through. The fix that works best is "Kill it and grill it". Dennis
