    I wonder how that all started, ie wonder how the hog came to be in the bear jaws? Could a bear chase down a healthy hog?

    My theory is the pig had been hit by a vehicle and suffered reduced mobility but wasn't killed. Bear comes along and tried to drag the pig to a little more secluded area.

    Must’ve been, because the bear let go numbers of times and the hog went nowhere. Just stood his ground. The black bear thing is weird, because while they’ll eat meat, it has been mostly understood that they forage for predominantly plants, berries and other vegetation.

    Yeah, yeah, I get it. Critters kill critters for food, survival of the fittest and all that, but hearing the kids in the background asking about the hog like they were concerned about it being hurt reminded me of some of the childhood memories I’d like to forget.

    I always thought it sort of depended on the time of year. Spring they eat tender plants and berries and fall they eat a lot of meat to buildup fat reserves for winter. I could be all wet in my thinking though.

    Bears are omnivores, and like most animals that have meat in their diets, they're opportunists. It might not go out and stalk a hog, but if it finds one that it sees as easy prey, well, I doubt it's gonna just walk away.
