A Pig -- Up Close and Personal

A Return Visit to the Pig on Oak Lane


Today I went back to see the pig on Oak Lane and get some better photos. She was in the mood to pose today, so I thought you might like to see her. Even though she appeared to be somewhat afraid of me and at first ran when I approached the fence, she finally got curious enough to come take a closer look at this human creature pointing a camera at her. I had to be very patient and quiet to keep her from running away again.

She finally came right up to the fence sideways as you see in this photo. But that still seemed to hide a lot of her. I was amazed at the amount of noise she made. I can usually hear her before I see her because she is loud. When  she snorts, she sounds like an old tractor that has stalled and is trying to start again. ( Listen in the video below.)

Just to let you know what these pigs sound like, I made a video on one visit to them. Here it is.





This pig decided to push her snout right through the fence, as you see below. I decided she couldn't top that, so I moved on down the road to see what else I could find. Stay tuned.
