    So, I was thinkin' about how mean hogs are. I mean, I've had 'em break off teeth trying to get through the wire of the trap at me. I would NEVER let one out alive. Anyway, I got to thinkin' about which would win, a 350 lb hog or a 400 lb black bear (not talkin' griz here) if you put 'em in a pen to fight it out? With a sufficient shield built up, I''m thinkin' my money is on the hog. Whadda ya think? Nothing serious here, just speculation.

    One thing to consider, though, dogs will subdue a pig, but wisely won't rush a bear. Hmmm.....:D

    Depends... does the bear practice Muay Thai? He might be able to kick the pig to death.
    :rolleyes: :D :p :neener:

    My money would be on the bear claws and bear teeth.

    What does this have to do with firearms?

    Nothing, concerns animals and this is the hunting section. If it's inappropriate, delete it or lock it.

    Bow hunting has nothing to do with firearms, either. Hell, I've hunted pigs with a knife.

    I've gotta ask. I you voted pig wins, and you've hunted pigs with a knife......Would you consider hunting a black bear with a knife?

    Just curious.

    BTW:
    I voted bear

    Being mean isn't all there is to fighting. My granny was mean, but I doubt if she would have been much of a match for a cage fighter in the same weight class.:D....I vote "bear"....He's got the advantage of reach with powerful clawed limbs, plus speed and agility.

    Black Bears eat Pigs.
    Pigs don't eat Black Bears.

    Does that tell you who would win 99% of the time?

    It doesn't but this is the "Hunting" section so I guess hypothetically if a Bear was "hunting" a hog and found it got trapped into a cage and had to fight to the death for his food the Bear would win! :D

    I'm as wary as the next guy of a mean hog, because I'm a soft-bellied primate whose primary combat ability is intellect. If I was a thick boned, thick furred ursine creature with razor-like claws, nasty teeth, and brutal strength I would be less so.

    Ain't never been a bear small enough to get close to (that goes triple for the fuzzy cubs).

    A bear with his back to a ledge (or cage in this case) can whip anything that steps within his reach.

    Now, if a coon grew to be half the size of a black bear, it would eat bear for breakfast. :)

    A bear isn't so tough, I've hunted bears butt naked before. Luckily I didn't find any.

    IF not-caged or limited in any way, a bear can easily climb a tree to retreat if necessary.

    I'm not sure what the hog can do other than roll in the mud and smell-badly.:D

    Ben Lily did it. Used to be big sport in Louisiana back when they had a lot of bears. You stab 'em across the back, they always strike out toward the pain, or so they say. :D

    Hmm, looks like the bear at this point is a 17 to 1 favorite. I'd stand to win a lot of money if the pig won. :D I've never seen a really POed bear, just a couple in the wild while hiking out west. The hogs I see are ALL POed and wanna rip my guts out, so I guess I'm a little unnaturally biased in the fight.

    A hog might take a swat at you, then he'll run for the densest cover he can find, which down here is pretty abundant. Now, I've met a guy, short fellow, had a scar from his naval to his left nipple. He was hog hunting, pig got loose of the dogs, no one had it's hind legs, pig laid him open. He told me he had to hold his guts in while they got him to the emergency room. It's a blood sport, put it that way, and sometimes, on occasion, the pig draws the blood.

    What about Al Gore and Manbearpig vs both the bear and pig in a cage match?

    I'd have to go for the bear. My real answer though is option C: a wolverine the same size and weight would whip 'em both.
