Counted 19 javelina, just outside kitchen window. They were attracted to the water, but none took a drink. We've pitched watermelon rind in the area and usually gray fox come and snack. The javelina that is laying down was breathing heavy, walked differently and appeared to have a heavy belly. Either she drinks a lot of beer or is having a late season baby. Third picture is the boar.

They're sure cute little buggers. How do they eat? Looks like they'd be easier to process than bigger feral hogs? Good for Carnitas maybe.

Also called stink pig. Big gland on flank. Best to wear gloves and not use your favorite knife. Slow cook and then braised as carnitas. Meat appears red like most wild game, but changes with cooking.

Maintaining this looks like it could be a permanent part of your day.
If you ever want to make that automatic, you might be interested in investgating this.....


EDIT: sorry for the huge url. Its how things came out. It's automatic watering system for pigs. $11.69 from Amazon....of course, I suppose you could rig the water valve from an old toilet, too. Might be even less expensive (Free!)
Posted in case you get interested in such things, in the future.

Power went off, so sliding door was open. Happened to be looking out and had phone in hand. Coyote wasn't nervous but could sense something was different. Hung around and casually left. Who new coyote would like honey dew melon. Hard not to bust it! Avid coyote caller lives here.

Ok, one last mention on this, I PROMISE.
Just ran across this video and it seemed to pertain to what I quoted above.
Again, posted in case you get interested in something like this in the future.
...Off my soapbox now. Please enjoy the video...
