Shot this sow opening weekend. I guess she got caught in a trap or something but it didn't seem to slow her down. The interesting part was that she had several piglets in her when I gutted her. How some raunchy old boar could take advantage of a disabled petunia is beyond me.

That's neat. I knew a three legged dog when I was a kid, she was not slow either. Maybe a birth defect. Regardless, thanks for the removal of the other 3.

No hind leg, bet it was difficult hooking up to skin.

Wonder if it is a type of trap. We have hogs all over our place, opening weekend one of the guys shot a three legged hog. 2 weeks later we had one come out while we were deer hunting but couldn't get a good shot on him.

We've been on there 5-6 years now don't recall seeing any three legged hogs and then had 2 within weeks of each other.

Could be a trap. Could be a previously shot and healed hog. Either way, good to shut down the factory.

As for slowing them down, loss of a hind leg isn't nearly as bad as loss of a front leg as the front legs do more to control momentum when turning during running.

A man was walking down the street with a three legged pig on a leash. Man B approached and questioned man A about his pig , only having three legs. . Man A said 'that's my amazing pig. I was about to loose my farm, the pig came back with some black sticky stuff on its back. it was oil. It saved my farm and I became wealthy. "But why does it only having three legs", Man B queried? "It's My amazing pig. I was asleep. The pig woke me up. there was a fire in my house. I was able to save my family and myself!' 'that is amazing, but what about the three legs?' Well exclaimed' Man A you wouldn't a pig like that all at once! grin

Believe it or not that tendon was still intact so hanging it up was no problem. I had the hog made into chorizo, should make some good tacos!

Knew a guy that raised 3 legged chickens, I asked how they tasted...he said "don't know, can't catch em'".

Some years back in Stephens county my buddy Ben shot and hit a three-legged hog. We followed the blood trail a good quarter mile to where it crossed onto a no-go pasture. He got redemption a few weeks later when he and I did a countdown shoot on a group of several rooting through a hay ring. His kill turned out to be the three-legger-

We had one that had a bad messed up back leg. It sat on its but like a dog and drug itself around and left a drag mark in the sand. We had pictures of it for a long time, probably 6 months or more at feeders and we would see the trail where it had drug itself from time to time. We finally found the remnants of it in some brush behind our tank dam.

Someone tried a Texas heart shot and missed a little.
