By equal comparison, you could say it doesn't look to be a sow because it has no obvious teats and a sow that large should have been pregnant and nursed several times by now.
Theres a strange thing about sows with Eurasian boar characteristics in this area: i have trapped and shot numerous 2-4 year old sows that never nursed a litter. Its almost unusual to kill a pregnant or nursing sow with Eurasian boar characteristics here. The same is not true of the sows that have domestic characteristics: They are often pregnant.

Example: In November, 2008 i shot two huge sows that had Eurasian boar blood. One field dressed 212 pounds the other 188 pounds: The biologist aged both hogs at four years old. One was pregnant, neither had ever nursed a litter.
