Default Need a redneck hog catcher/killer near New Caney ASAP

A friend of mine has a "wild boar" stuck in her backyard out between new caney and grangerland. It weighs a whopping 10-15 pounds. She's afraid to let her kids in the backyard. It's "too fast to shoot" (her husband tried earlier). Need someone to go to the rescue. Requirement: Need video or at least good photos. They live in the sticks and there is brush in the yard for it to hide under. I wish I had time to take my Catahoula over there but today's a bad day. Somebody answer this noble call of duty. If you can go pretty soon, let me know and I'll get you the address/contact info!

10-15lbs is a new pet.

I'd go catch it if I wasn't stuck at the office.

You are welcome to shoot it with a 22 or something. No dog required. It's not in a restricted neighborhood or anything.

I may have a hero en route. Waiting for confirmation. He's checking the parameters of his life insurance policy.

Chris, pretty much any dog could handle a 10 pound pig. Get over there and post up a video!

Fargus is the confirmed participant in this year's Hunger Games. He will be going in without the aid of a trained attack dog. May the odds forever be in your favor.

It is a small piglet. 10-15 pounds was her guess.

It's a large wooded backyard with brush. She last saw the suspect 15-20 minutes ago.

Special Operator Fargus should be circling over the scene in 20-30 mikes. LZ could be hot so he's going in locked, cocked, and ready to rock. The helo will probably do a few false insertions in other backyards to keep the enemy guessing. God speed, soldier.
