she has a new pet


Our neighbor was checking the hog traps today when they noticed a momma hog with some babies.  They chased and caught one of the babies.

The pig is so cute, yet so destructive.  His momma can have three litters of 6 to 12 pigs per year (gestation 115 days).  And the feral pigs are capable of breeding at six months of age but eight to ten months is normal.  That’s much better than compound interest.

Feral hogs generally travel in family groups called sounders, comprised normally of two sows and their young. Mature boars are usually solitary, only joining a herd to breed.
