  2. Thats a lot of bacon lol. Are wild pigs as fatty as normal pigs or are they leaner?
     

  3. normally leaner however that pig was the fattest wild pig ive seen once it was skinned
     
  4. I havent ever seen a wild pig other then bores on tv. If its really fat for a wild animal do you think it was domesticated and escaped? Pigs have a important place in history lol. The US and english almost went to war over a pig. A long time ago washington was a territory held by both sides. One of the islands I believe had settlers from both countries with 2 of the settlers who had land close to each other. One day a pig that belonged to a british settler wandered on to the other settlers land and was shot when it was caught eatting his potatos. both settlers went to their governments and it almost started a war with both sides increasing their forces in the area like a ghetto cold war. After a while the british backed down and gave up their territories in washington up to I beleive the modern US Canada borders.
    Its been a long time since 7th grade WA hitsotry so thats just what I remember I did a search and found a much better summery lol
    here is a link about what could be the most important pig in history and the war that almost started because of it

    'Normally' it's very lean and makes beautiful bacon if you know someone, in fact it blows the bought stuff into the weeds....
