Yep. If it where a hogs head in that pic, we would see the ears sticking up as hogs have large, prominent ears.

That's what I was trying to convince myself of exactly!

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Great reference photos! Thanks! That really clears it up.

Not meaning to high jack this thread, but I think the above statement applies to liberal democrat politicians ( like our governor and senator)

You're welcome. In the top pic the hog on the left, and in the bottom pic the big boar, both ended up taking dirt naps.

Now that's a laugh. So you are saying that the game commission fought against the plaintiff lawsuit to compel enforcement against pigs only to secretly throw the case to get jurisdiction... You are funny.

Came down to a taxonomic classification of wild boar. IIRC, the Other side had an expert, PGC did not. There is still controversy among scientists about the issue, except in Pennsylvania where total lack of an expert caused the case to go against the PGC. You may think it is funny. When a litigant throws a case by intentional failure to obtain an expert and it affects tax payers, I take it dead serious. Cases are thrown frequently. Sometimes it is collusion to establish a favorable precedent. My very first experience as a beginning attorney was being sent to court at the last minute for a motion hearing. I was nervous to be appearing in court for the first time as a lawyer. I had only 20 minutes to prepare and I argued the legal issue and won the motion. I went back to the office and the boss called me in and told me not to feel so bad about losing. I told him I didn't, I won. He turned white as a ghost and told me the client actually wanted to lose the motion and they never thought it possible that the motion could be won, which is why I was sent out. In a strange turn of events, winning cost the client about $5,000 in damages in another similar case involving a different contractor.

That can very well be a legal strategy that experienced council will consider. Not as far fetched as you may think.

I hope none of my hogs get out of pen during hunting season.

I will tell you for a certainty that the PGC did not want to have to be responsible for feral hogs!
