Normally, I'm not a big fan of mosaic pins, but that middle pin framed by the smaller ones REALLY looks nice against that desert ironwood background! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That's correct, Unk.....there is no trychinosis in any of the government inspected hogs produced in the U.S.A. today.  Cooking pork roasts or chops to a slightly 'pink' degree of doneness is perfectly safe these days......juicier and better tasting, too. :drool:

The first reading of what Moe said I mistakenly got the impression that the hunters were saying the wild meat was being contaminated from recent escapees

But we know T is largely under control when it comes to domestic hogs. If anything pasture raised pork would be more prone to infection but still would be rare, I think.

In the wild, the pigs are most likely to come into contact with carries like skunk, opossum, raccoon and rats, or even from eating another (dead) infected pig. I have taken the time to look to see if any studies have been done to determine the infection rates found in feral pig populations.

I did not know that wild hogs were susceptible to brucellosis or were carriers of it, but it is very common in wild American Bison herds.  It does not hurt THEM a bit, but if they (as carriers) pass it on to domestic herds of beef cattle it can be devastating.  Saliva residue left by the bison on grasses that the cattle then graze upon can then spread the disease throughout the herd of cattle.  The biggest problem for cattle is that it produces stillborn calves.  A BIG deal for Montana cattle ranchers when the Yellowstone Park bison wander outside the northern boundary of the park onto their cattle ranches and mingle with their herds!

My current friend is the third I have been blessed to know. The first was in college, he was a great dog, lived fifteen years, he died with no warning waiting for his snack, the second was a lab, I had to put her down, she died in my lap.

The first was Sparky, I got him from the pound, a mutt, raised in a house full of rugby players, was a fixture at many games. All he wanted was some attention and an occasional big mac. Then I got the lab, coco, a friend was sent to Korea so I took her. A couple of years later he was back and heartbroken the dog no longer remembered him. Sparky taught coco about the Ortiz household. Then Coco passed on that knowledge to my current buddy, spot. Now as she is getting along in years it is important to find a new friend needing a home so she can teach them the Ortiz family way.

Max, I too am not looking forward to the day spot passes, it always hurts bad when they go.
