Looks like it really had reverted to "native wild" genetics of centuries gone by.

If it aint the same one, you probably have 80 more running around just like it pretty close.

Nothing unusual there, feral hog. Needs shooting.

Just in case you should freeze him after skinning and send him over to me so I can turn him all into bratwursts and make sure it is pig.

Grubby..we don't worry with the big pigs...We only eat smaller ones....Most of these bigger boars smell really bad....Wild pig does make good BBQ....

Some places in East Texas they trap Boars, nut'm, cut the tails off and set'm free. After awhile the meat is good and they tend to put on more weight. You see one with a docked tail you know he's a good eating pig.

Can't donate the meat to some local homeless shelter? Double duty, feed the poor, and entice them to move on.

That's a little easier said than done, kinda hard at 2:00 am.

Sometimes you have a willing recipient lined up and they change their minds when you call.

Same thing with trapped hogs, I will hold them live for a few hours for people, but then its lights out. If the weather is too hot I will kill them, I won't leave them in the heat.
Regardless of the final disposition, they will die before leaving my custody. I do make reasonable efforts to give them away, but in the end...they will die.

A friend of mine that has a ranch in South Texas donates the meat to the locals. He say's it keeps them from rustling his cattle. And he get's a lot of pork tamales!

Back when I was 'smithing I had a local state hunter who was hired to clear a local state park of a huge herd of feral pigs. He used a Ruger Super Blackhawk in .44 mag shooting SSK 325 grain bullets at 1400 fps... ouch. He asked me to de-horn the bottom of the hammer as it was tearing up his hand.

He carried a SBH as the pigs loved to get into the networks of manzanita and madrone and a person had to go in on hands and knees to get in there. He said his load shot all the way through the 300 pounders from any angle.

He lined up the local Catholic Worker Kitchen and delivered pick-up truck full loads of them till the park was cleared out.
