Over 1800 lb. wild boar shot and killed in Conroe, Texas near the County Airport, East of I-45 and near the community of Cut and Shoot. Killed by a medical Radiology worker...What would you do if this beast was coming at you? Run for dear life? Climb a tree? or simply get run over?

A Texas Pig

BBQ Ribs anyone?

Cute little Texas pig ...That was killed in the town of Cut-N-Shoot TX. We call them Piney Wood Rooter's.

There was a documentary on about a month ago about these things growing up so rapidly in the US . They're all over Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, Florida, and other states. You ever wonder what happens to those people that just leave home and disappear but their car is found out on a dirt road? Between bigfoot and these monsters, I think we know!

Yep......only in Texas! We were taught to stand still because their eye sight is poor. By standing still they probably would not see you and walk right on by. And No you can't out run them!! Look at how tall the grass and weed's are. How fast do you think you would be running thru that? I don't know about Ya'll but I'm a fat slow joker that would fall flat on my face after a few step's.

Porkchop, anyone ?
