Tragedy. Pray the brother recovers.

But it seems to me that's why they put iron sights on 22 rifles. Why was he touching the pig with the rifle when he fired?

Hogs are tough. I had a patient yesterday that is a hog farmer and he is pretty beat up after dealing with these animals over the course of about 40 years. I bet the hog did it on purpose for a little pay back.

Nope, the swine didn't recover :(. Neighbor H. Lecter was however following this news with a morbid fascination!

My father once told me that when he was growing up, they were going to slaughter a hog. It took 5 .38 rounds in the head to kill it.

Kill or be killed. So what, he went to kill the pig and the pig might have killed him. Survival of the fittest and he wasn't the fittest. Sounds like a bunch of stupid worthless white trash rednecks to me. Sounds like some real irresponsibility going on there.

Years ago when I had to help with hog killing, everybody used a single shot .22 rifle and a .22 short bullet. There's a thin spot in a pig's skull that you must hit and if you miss there will be a lot of excitement.
