Not if you knock it's teeth out first. [Big Grin] It must have been really cold to stick one of those bushy rats down your pants.

I would say anything over 200 lbs would qualify as dangerous. They weigh enough and have long enough teeth to take you down. Not mention if you were alone the pig would be likely to eat you after the get done stomping you into the mud.

Is it likely that the average pig will attack you? Not so much, is it possible that a big boar or sow will come after you, yes it is. The bigger they are the meaner they get. A 400lb or bigger male is dangerous no matter how you look at it. I wouldn't rate them with water buffallo or lions. I would rate large males as equal with Moose for agressiveness.

Is that the one that culminated with the prediction that we will soon see a superpig? Their conclusion at the end of the show was that there would be a 6 foot tall, 1,500 pound pig with 5 foot tusks that could run 60 mph.

This was the most inaccurate pile of rubbish I've ever seen on TV. It was hilarious for its complete lack of any scientific basis and failure to use any kind of realistic or well thought out methods.

My favorite part was when they saw the little russian boar, then had an "expert" draw a behemoth of a 5 foot pig behind a set of eyes which was about 12" off the ground! lol

My vote? Only if wounded and cornered or harassed by dogs. Like most NA game animals, hogs want nothing to do with humans and do their best to stay well out of your way.

I've hunted and killed enough hogs to know that they are no more dangerous than my wife when pissed off. You got to be smart enough to know when to leave well enough alone. [nono]

If yours is anything like mine, that IS dangerous!

Hogs are omivoires. They start life as food for other species. But as they grow, they eat carrion, and then can graduate to taking prey. But at some point, some of them can turn into the biggest SOB in the valley. If you run into one that has become an apex aminal of its realm, they can be very dangerous. Especially one that trips from a flight to a fight response. But we are talking BIG.

Not saying they are going to hunt humans, but they can become very territorial. Those that have been aound people seem to keep their healthy fear of man.

Sows with piglets can get an attitude. We had one charge and butt our truck at night as we rolled up into a field.

Most of the ones that I have hunted were under 300 pounds, and only one turned to stand his ground following a short chase after being ventilated with 3 lung shots from a .45-70.

I have never run into anything over about 375 pounds, but they are out there.

My wife shot a 250lb boar hog thru both lungs and he ran about 10 yards stopped and broke the arrow off with his teeth then turned to charge her but he dropped before she could get another arrow in him. I was 75 yards away and heard the shot and then the hog clacking his teeth, when I got there it was all over.

I hunt hogs several times a week, archery hunts for clients, and have to say that most uninjured hogs just want to get out of the area when confronted by humans. An injured hog can be extremly dangerous when being tracked. The big ones can get plain nasty real fast, if precautions are taken a hog hunt is not all that dangerous. The blood trailing is the tricky part, best done with a good flashlight and big bore handgun.

I hunt pigs in east texas on a daily basis. I have had them tree me, charge me, and even take me down. They can be very dangerous if you are not careful. 99% will run but there's that one that wont. A sow with pigs is very dangerous if you crowd her and the pigs. I'm not saying to be afraid just be cautious. Respect them. You never know what they will do. I even shot one boar that ran into the brush and waited on me to come look. He just had to have that one last shot. [archer2]
