    I thought I'd show you a hog to go wild over.

    This is how we grow them in the South.

    [​IMG] I think I'll stay right up here in Michigan, thank you very much!!

    I am scared of giant hogs...don't they sometimes attack and eat humans?

    Uh, you could win a really big prize with that at the Iowa State Fair. We think big boars rock up here.

    We have some wild ones on the farm, though not quite that big. My SO insists I carry a gun when I go walking around on the farm by myself.
    The farmers hate them because they destroy the meadows.

    Quote:yup...they will eat a human....ever hear of all the civil war stories? how the wounded men left on the battlefield (or set off in the woods by the battlefields) would hear them coming at night or early morning..and then they would hear their buddy being eaten alive by them..
