MM, are you sure that pig isn't Arnold Ziffel from Green Acres?

Could be, but his name is "Bacon".  No joke, that is his name. 

The neighbor came and got it last night...again.  Hopefully this time it's gone, but no matter because if it comes back I will do nothing.   ::)

I think he likes you and appreciates the good neighbor he has  ;).  One of my recurring nightmares is that dad gets back into raising hogs, no joke.

Sandhills, I am with you, brother.  We raised hogs when I was growing up.  Looking back, we raised hogs poorly.  Very inefficient and very labor intensive.  Nightmare stuff for sure.

Good for you getting that video.  That is the exact grunting noise that "my" pig was making.  

This is actually surprising/alarming because all of these years I have assumed that the Pig Roast pig came from the meat market.  Looks like you are expecting a smaller crowd this year.  :D :D

Magicman I've seen a lot of people on here have saw dogs you could have a saw hog. Jokes aside pigs eat snakes so they are good for more then just Bacon. Of coarse Bacon still tops the list.

A young couple came climbing the hill across the road from my place yesterday afternoon, asking if I saw a pig. They live right at the bottom of the hill. I told them yes, but he had left, going back over the hill towards home  He took off when he saw me get the dog leash. That pig knew what the dog leash was. The owner said, yup, he does not like a leash! :D
