+1 to the spouse not liking that.
Nice pig. He definately is a brute.
As far as mounts and scaring the bejebes out of the wife. I have a 4 ft rattle snake mounted in the coiled ready to stike position (actually beat the sucker to death with my bow a few years ago when I stepped on him while stalking a buck). First time my wife (who is german) came to visit my folks I had my dad put the sucker out in the tall grass and then I went walking with her. When she saw the thing she screamed and jumped right into my arms screaming still. Once she figured that it was dead she proceded to slug me in the gut. I deserved it, but it also made the point stick not to wander in teh tall grass without looking where you are stepping.
