How about this critter? Doesn’t look like a hog...feet instead of hooves.

Possum. If it’s a pig it has a tail that sticks straight out and is the size of a cactus...

I think Jeff nailed it. As far as tail, the camera captured the pig as its tail swung out... Feral pigs generally have a long mostly straight tail that flails about a LOT.

Pig in my book.

I hate to say it boys, but that right there is a black panther. I've never been more sure of anything in my life.

In retrospect, if the panels in the background are hog panels, no way this could be a hog. Too fat for a baby hog. Porcupine maybe but the tail doesn't look right for a porcupine.


Beats me.
