I kept eyeing up a cedar tree to climb in case a hog got out.

 :D



How cute! :)

Admittedly the matching parasol may have been a bit much for farm attire   :D
When I climb Cedar for our "conference", will get a shot or two from up there, maybe even a selfie.  Without parasol.

Before anyone thinks hunting wild hogs is easy, check out the article:

I believe it!! Pigs, hogs known to be the most intelligent land animal.
Armed with those tusks, wow, watch out.
Years ago my husband (now ex) went wild boar hunting somewhere in CA. He said it was really dangerous. They brought back lots of meat and shared it among the families of the three guys.

I would imagine the males are protective of the group...

I'm way more afraid of encountering wild hogs/boars than mountain lion or bear.  One lone hog is usually just opportunistically foraging, but a large group of them, on a dark and lonely night is an extremely scary proposition!  And if you see any, don't trip or fall on your way to your tree or fence.  They'll be on you in a heartbeat, as you're "down" and fair game.

We know of a guy working in a hog slaughterhouse, who tripped on the slimy floor, and the hogs were on him lickety-split, and they had eaten the flesh from his leg, all the way to the bone in the few seconds it took for co-workers to rescue him.

This must be the exception, not the rule, from your warning:
