I ran outside this morning, barefooted in my nightgown to see why the dogs, chickens and goats were going crazy. This is what I saw. The hog does not have 6 legs. The black and white legs belong to the Australian type Shepherd dog that was with him. This is a wild hog but isn't wild. He is someone's pet and has been castrated. The dog killed my only Ameraucana rooster so he is not on my good list. You can see the feathers in the picture. DH checked with all of the neighbors but no one knew anything about a pet wild hog and a companion dog. Our neighbor helped DH drive them out a gate into another neighbor's pasture and we hope they go home and DO NOT come back. We are not sure how they got in but they could not figure out how to get out. Hence the gate opening and help finding the exit.

That is CRAZY! I've never heard of a pet wild hog, what a strange thing to wake up to. I'm really sorry about your roo, people should keep up with their animals and not let them get loose to terrorize other people's livestock. Hopefully this won't become a regular occurance! I'm glad all your goaties are okay!
