    Tagged porker

    I just cornered a wee black porker as I came up my driveway, adjacent to forestry block. Just as I was about to let the dog out of the car for a play, I noticed it was wearing a pretty orange ear tag with writing on it. No pig farms in the area to best of my knowledge, and my limited knowledge says it was a wild pig.
    Any ideas?

    He got away into the pines by the way

    Some pig hunters tag animals they release their way of telling others they have "exclusive access" to a block. Strange habits some people have.

    As a species they are very territorial and will defend "their patch" releasing tagged animals is like stags scent marking their patch, (some may do that too) could get in trouble for that last bit!

    Id say it would still taste alright ,just cut the tag off before putting on the spit or it might melt and ruin it.
