    Ok then, outdoor pet then. (I had a friend who had Cappybaras as pets. Now those things were cool!)

    If someone could tell me how to post pictures, I have a couple of pictures of a pet javalina from our ranch in Az.

    Make a photobucket account and place your pictures there. Then when your ready to post a pic here click the img code in the box that reads [share this photo]. That copies it ,then paste here. I use ctl + v to paste.

    You'll notice the attacks typically involve the presence of a dog. Arizona Game and Fish puts out a pamphlet about the wee beasties that highlights this issue. They hate dogs.

    Javelina are tasty little rodents! Slow barbecued or pit roasted is the best way.
    Nasty, smelly, dirty hides, but a good blade fixes that!

    Snakes don't generally smell bad unless you give them a reason to musk you. (Those that musk, anyway.)

    No javelina in my neighborhood but we have plenty of hogs. Snapped this pic while hiking in a city park on a snowy day last month. Walked up a couple of groups, maybe 8 or so in each group. Fortunately, they went one way while I went the other.

    I had a pet monkey as a kid - they really are rather dirty creatures.

    They hunt them all the timein Texas. Peccary aka javelina. Are you allowed to hunt them in AZ?

    Answer to my own question: http://www.azgfd.gov/h_f/game_javelina.shtml

    Get yourself a compound or recurve bow, and a large freezer! :D

    Would you believe that I've never seen a javelina, even though I've lived in Tucson since '98? I smell them all the time, so I know they're around. See coyotes all the time, right in the middle of town. But never seen a javelina. My parents live in Vail (outside of Tucson), and javelina come by once in a while. They smell the water and try to dig up the sprinklers and pipes.
