1. Fun fact, a farmer once had a seizure and fell in their pig trough while they were feeding them. The pigs gobbled em up completely.

  2. I found this out a few years ago when I was browsing liveleak and came across a video from India of a pig eating and dragging around a dead baby. No amount of gore I saw there was comparable to that, wish I never saw it.

  3. Also, Wild Boars are dangerous because it doesn't matter who or what they come across,they will ALWAYS fight! It Doesn't matter if it is 1 person or thousands of soldiers, they will ALWAYS charge you!

  4. Knowing how big pigs are makes the statistic that 7 of them could eat a whole human in a few hours a lot easier to understand.

  5.  I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig shit, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig".

  6. You shouldn't dump a body in an area with less than 15 hogs. Don't forget to strip it of all clothing and make sure it has no metal implants or fake teeth. It's also helpful to make sure the pigs haven't eaten in at least a day, just to make sure.

  7. Because the not adults are easier to move about. Where does a 1200 lb pig sleep? Where ever it wants! Where does a 12 lb pig sleep? Where ever you put it. Like most things in Hollywood, they like the younger ones. Also, they have shorter leg to body ratio than sheep. So they look shorter If not in the same shot.

  8. due to camera angles, sheep appear much smaller than they actually are. most adult sheep can reach a length of 20 feet, weighing almost as much as a school bus. in fact, my mother, who grew up in a small farming town, used to ride the sheep to school along with the rest of her class. kids would hold on tight to the sheep's wool and the designated driver would throw lettuce leaves to steer. once she said a kindergartener got himself all tangled up and couldn't get off until it was shearing season. poor little dude had to pray the sheep didn't get tired and lay on him

  9. On one hand, I love me some cute animal posting. On the other hand, I’m still snickering at the phrase “Paris Hilton’s massive hog”.

  10. PARIS HILTON IS A CERTIFIED SISTER IN HOGS (LIKE BROTHER IN ARMS BUT CHANGED FOR CONTEXT)! I'M GONNA CRANK A BIG ONE FOR HER TONIGHT! AAARRRWWWOOOOOOOOOO!

  11. The smallest recognized pig breed is actually the Juliana pig, and the Kunekune is larger than the Potbelly on average. Kunekunes tend to be between 60 and 200 kg (130 and 440 lb) and potbellies are typically weigh between 30 and 70 kg (about 70-150 lbs). Julianas weigh between 20 to 35 kg (about 40 to 80 lbs). My Potbelly Juliana mix pig weighs about 36 kg (80 lbs) She has a very cute mix of the Potbelly and Juliana characteristics!

  12. there are wild boars in the woods behind my house and the other week one growled at my mom when she was walking the dog at night. i feel very safe :)

  13. I used to sit and wonder why, in addition to the loss of their terrifying tusks, farm piggies got so small when they were kept domesticated when wild boars were big enough to be a video game area boss.

  14. All the pigs I've met were smaller than that though, like not even a meter (3 ft) tall. I don't there are pigs that massive in Italian farms (Wikipedia confirms my experience).

  15. Most pig farms send their pigs to market before they are fully mature in size. Even breeding them before then as most mammals will start breeding when they hit around 80% of their adult size. Also there are multiple different breeds of pig that will grow at different rates depending on what you feed them. Many smaller farms prefer smaller pigs because they are easier to feed and deal with. The breeds used in USA and I think UK do get that big IF they are allowed to reach full adult size and given correct nutrition. Also don’t mix up height and length. Their legs may be under a meter but their back may be two meters.

  16. Yea I seriously began to doubt the post when I saw the picture of the wild boar. Compared to that guy's head it can definitely be on par with a rhino's size

  17. Bobby B bot was the best thing on that sub. I had a genuinely sad day the first time I scrolled down far enough into the comments to see him posting confused nonsequiturs, instead of the "intelligent" replies with more karma than the things it replied to

  18. I knew pigs were fucking massive, but for some reason I still thought boars were the size of a large dog or something. Like, a kickable size.

  19. I once worked with a woman who thought that owls were fictional creatures invented by the Harry Potter books.

  20. I grew up in an area with a huge population of wild feral pigs. Seeing somebody driving on the freeway with a hulking, hairy black mass strapped to the top of their car is a relatively common sight. The pigs we have here are small compared to these pictures, but always improbably large in comparison to whoever has the unenviable task of hauling the carcass around like a backpack lmao

  21. Because the average Potbelly is smaller than a Kune Kune. Also, the smallest recognized breed of domestic pig is currently the Juliana. My pet pig is half potbelly, half Juliana. She's very small for a pig, but still quite a large animal. She weighs about 80-85 lbs but is smaller in height than my 35 lb dog.

  22. Yeah, I'm fairly sure wings on spears were made just to prevent general over-penetration, not boar-specific ones. Either that, or historians are secretly hiding tons of evidence of human-boar wars.

  23. They are specifically called boar spears in English quite far back, and appear to have mainly been used on bear, boar, and large wild bovine.

  24. Well, yes, but I imagine hunting boars would be the most common case where over penetration matters. If stabbing stops an animal you can pluck a spear out of it later, and wars are relatively rare. So, boar spear it is.

  25. Hunting spears in general did have lugs on them. Some military weapons did depending on what the fashion at the time was, but anything with extra bits on it was generally limited to the upper class until steel became a bit cheaper in the 16th century(ish).

  26. There's a reason those boar hunting spears are designed the way they are, boars will charge you, and if you don't have those stoppers on your spear, there's a good chance they will still fucking hit you with a spear through them

  27. people dont get that "micro" pigs still can grow up to 250 lbs... I had to explain this to my wife who has been begging me to get her one. She still wants one BTW.

  28. Texas land owner here y'all. This is why when we (my family) go for a walk along our property line we take our "high capacity" magazines for our semi-auto rifles and have pistols on us. Really at all times there are firearms within reach when out on the land.

  29. Fun fact: Boars have enough strenght to bite your bones in half If they really don't like and you flee on a tree, they charge at the tree to make said tree fall over. Lastly boars are tough. They can run a couple of km even when shot in the heart (that's what my dad told me anyways).

  30. Throwback to my neighbors pig escaping and charging at me. I was weedwhacking the ditch by the road and it got between me and my parent's house. Dude looked just like the one the guy was petting, fucking massive and I had never seen one in person so I had no clue they could get that big.

  31. To „well actually“ this post…the smallest pigs are the Göttingen Minipigs. They‘re around 35 kilos and were bred for biomedical research. Nowadays more and more people have them as pets.

  32. Most wild boars are not nearly this big dude. At least here in europe. Source: lived my whole life near a forest and have been more than once chased by a wild boar

  33. Boar spears were honestly just a smart idea (which is why they used them in war as well). Turns out that it’s just better to have the thing you just stabbed stay far away with only a little bit of your spear.

  34. You're always gonna have problems lifting a body in one piece. Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it all together.

  35. I am sorry, but I smell some bs in the first part. I have seen bunch of pigs that were smaller than that. maybe at best the "alpha" pig gets THAT big

  36. the cross brace is also used to keep your spear from penetrating too deep, cause otherwise it’s hard to pull it back out from over penetration
