These photos show a few large boars with big tusks (cutters), on a small property. If we extrapolate to cover all of Brazoria County with such creatures, it would hardly seem safe to walk in the woods! Perhaps, though, instead of monsters, we should consider them trophy animals?


A big boar, showing “trophy” qualities – cutters, size, and weight.

A boar this size has no natural enemies, other than man – with a big gun!

I’ve been watching this spotted boar virtually since he was born. He’s gone from a pudgy little pig to a muscular boar – and is still relatively young.
