    Silly Californians. They'll eat you too if you fall into a pen full of them...even if they're not feral. They'll eat everything.

    I know for a fact that after the Battle of Shiloh during the Civil War, and others as well, wild hogs ate the dead and even wounded that couldn't get away. Veterans of these battles said that the screams of the wounded being eaten alive haunted them all their lives. Locals in these areas refused to eat any locally killed hogs for years after the war because they felt it would be like cannibalism by proxy.

    Wow. That's a bit of history I've never heard. That's terrible, disturbing, and slightly interesting all rolled into one.

    I've read bits like this before in a few history books. Most gruesome.

    My dad told he when he was a kid, he and his dog were out hunting (squirrels I guess--that was about all there were then) and a bunch of wild hogs chased him and treed him. His dog ran away. He never saw the again and doesn't know if the hogs got him or not. This had to be in the late 30's or 40's and probably was in Hardin county (maybe Hart).
