Feral Pigs

We've never seen pigs on our place. 
Only a couple in the last 12 months. 
But now they've been slowly increasing and we've been inundated in the last week.
Three separate mobs in the last 4 days.
We got the majority of one mob on Friday night, leaving only 2 piglets who got away.

Then we found this mob on Sunday afternoon when we didn't have anything to dispatch them with.
I could only shoot with my camera.

The little piglets were pretty cute.
We gave chase,

and then tried to do I don't know what on foot.

Husband was charged by this old sow.
I was charged by her too and screamed and promptly ran and got back in the ute!
Henry was in the ute driving, squealing with laughter!
We felt a bit sorry for her as she seems to be missing her rear right trotter.
We wonder how she lost it, quite possibly another pig ate it off. yuk!

We went looking for them again this afternoon and only managed to find yet another new lot!
They were too far away to shoot. There was the most ginormous boar I've ever seen.
Good god I feel like I'm surrounded by the pigs from the book/movie Hannibal!
 I just hope there's no pig pit that I can fall into!!!!
They terrify me!
