we don't have wild hogs here , i do mostly cowwork . zeke was out of the last cowboy x sue cross that clue made and was my best dog . you could drive yearlings with him 1 day and catch a ton bull the next . anyway a guy said there were 3 hogs loose around some gravel pits that nobody would claim . said 1 was a monster and the other 2 were about 250 . i figgerd theyd wind up being about half that . i lined up some amish boys to help and we turned loose last fri , my 11 year old woke up that morning with some kinda fever and couldn;t go to school , it musta been hog fever or swine flu or something like that but he was all better that evening . lol

                         zeke and minnie got bayed about a quarter off the road and we eased in to"em the little hogs weighed maybe a hunderd and the other was a beast !i buthered one last year that weighed 805 and i'd guess this one at 850 easy . it was 2 hamps and a white  hog , i roped the little hamp and tied him down , them got a rope on hogzilla and started for th road he was so fat that after abou 20 yards it just slipped right over his head . then he got in some thick crap and we had to get down and crawl in trying to get 'em roped .

     igeuss zeke got impatient , when he cuaght that hog he got rooted and smashed into the ground . this hog had 4-5 inch cutters ! when zeke got up i caught him and checked him out , he  was cut but not to bad . about that time they hollerd that they had him caught n tied to a tree . i said we better turn him loose and get to the vet . we couldn't have got him out without a pair of mules anyway. not where he was at without a chainsaw .


zeke died sunday evening . we got whooped pretty bad but that hogs days are numberd !

Hate to hear that JDT, sure hope you get some strings on his feet, although it sounds like you might need some logging chains for hobbles...

Did you ever determine what killed him, bad internal injury?
