Was the danger you were in to do with killing animals for sport?
Authored by: TerryC on Wednesday, December 26 2012 @ 03:29 AM EST
Yes.

I'd be interested to learn how often the inhabitants of Arizona get charged by a
herd of pig-sized animals when going about their daily business.

This reminds me of something I read somewhere about what the Victorians said
about the African Lion; 'This animal is dangerous, it defends itself when
attacked'.

That is, selling javelina tags to hunters, who are sometimes successful, seems
to be sufficient to keep the population at a reasonable level. Why pay for
professional marksmen? Sounds like welfare by another name to me.

P.S. Come to VA and take a few deer off our roads...bullets are cheaper than
vehicle repairs!

Hello, Ian. Thank you for your reply. I appreciate your comments.

I was not hunting for sport, meat, or trophies when I was attacked by the
javelina. I was checking on my wildlife feeders and water stations (one of my
chosen methods of helping the wildlife that inhabit my rural area).

I (wisely, I think) arm myself on my "patrols", as one never knows
when one might encounter a species that is aggressive. I've had to kill
numerous predators, venomous snakes, rabid raccoons and skunks, and so forth.

I do not actively pursue predators except to eliminate personal threats, as I
prefer wildlife to maintain a healthy balance.

Where I live, it unwise to walk around without some sort of firearm ready to
hand. If one encounters a small threat, a .22 pistol might be sufficient. A
larger threat might require a large calibre pistol or a shotgun. A javelina
charge warrants an "assault" rifle. Granddad always said, "Pick
the right tool for the job."

Best regards!
