What happens to a domesticated pig after it is sent to the wild?
i heard they turn into really hairy things with tusks in just 4 weeks, without human interaction, if you put them in a forest or something. is it true? websites??
1. Don't believe the hype. Sounds like you are describing a wild boar. An animals genetics don't change just because they don't have any human interaction.
2. Perhaps you got that idea from reading Daniel Pinkwater's "Three Big Hogs." But it took longer than that.
There are indeed feral pigs in various places, who escaped from the farm and adapted to the wild. They are big animals and can be quite good at defending themselves, especially once they become adults.
Domestic pigs become wild with little trouble if they get the chance; and they do grow tusks, which in captivity would be trimmed neatly.
Wild and domestic pigs are basically the same animal, except that domestic pigs have been bred for certain traits.
