Why is a javelina hog considered a game animal?

Two things: One, a javelina is not actually a “swine”, it is a collared peccary. No relation to a hog. Two, javelinas are native, or indigenous to the state of Texas. Only indigenous species are regulated by TP&WD. Hope this helps.

Other hogs were introduced by settlers in 1539 or at least that's what google said

LOL! If you haven't read "King Rat" by James Clavell, you should.

Actually, in my opinion, it's one of those books that should be required reading in high school.

As a side note, Clavell was indeed a prisoner in Changi, Singapore during WWII, and the hidden radio described in the book really existed. It's on display in the Imperial War Museum in London. I've seen it.

If squirrels are game animals I guess javelinas can be too. I sent my wife this picture and she called it the giant vampire mouse.

More related to a dog than a pig. They eat fine, just gotta be careful with that scent gland.
