The hogs didn't test it. Now I don't even overlap the panels and just connect them at the top & bottom. Haven't had a hog get in yet, and I've got a LOT of hogs. If they learn to plow through my weak setup I'll fix it.
I built this pen about 5 years ago before we had feral hogs regularly. It did the trick to keep cows out. Now that the hogs moved in, this upgrade was free (had the panels) and did the trick. No hogs in 3 weeks per game camera.
