    Wolverine? Nah, a wolverilla. That's a wolverine on one end and a gorilla on the other. No way he can poop, which is what makes him so mean.

    I think the meanest animal pound for pound I've ever dealt with was a badger. But, we don't have a lot of wolverines down here. :D

    Huh? Art, you're from Texas, where I understand there are big and mean alligators with a head on each end. That they can't poop explains why they are so big and mean. But a wolverilla? That's kind of far-fetched. I'm rather doubtin' your story.

    Well, they're both just big weasels, so the comparison is probably pretty apt.

    Ben Lilly killed lots of bears with his knife to protect his dogs when the dogs had the bear bayed. He made his own knives to do so with. Check out the book "the Ben Lilly legend" by Frank Dobie. Ben was a helluva man and died rich from collecting fees from big ranchers in New Mexico for keep predators away from cattle. He was from North La and is still revered by those that know of him in LA and elsewhere. Lilly also collected typed specimens for the Smithsonian Institution in Wash. DC.

    I am a Ben Lilly fan,

    I'm thinking the bear would be dining on pork ribs.

    If the bear had the will to fight something his own size he would win no doubt, he simply has more tools. But in the real world a feral hog is much more aggressive and downright nasty. 1st rule of the animal kingdom if you are not scared of it, then it is scared of you, (with VERY few exceptions, such as the badger). I have proven this point several times in my life.
    I think a boar would chase a black bear all over that cage.

    Size being equal, I'd bet on the bear too. My relatives and their neighbors used to build pretty stout pens to keep animals away from their pigs and hogs. In that area, a bear was the biggest predator.

    Well, a barnyard pig has little in common with the wild boar. You can't pet these critters. :D

    Well, I guess I know which would win in the gator vs pig battle. :D

    Second that! :)
    Talk about an animal that wakes up on the wrong side of the bed every morning.... I have only seen one once, and he was not too happy!

    I voted hog, assuming it's a boar with usable tusks. They've got armor and vicious aggressiveness on their side.

    The bear has thick fur and some gnarly claws, but I think the boar hog would have the bear bled out or disabled in short order.

    The boar is too heavy in the chest and shoulders to balance on his hind legs. If he can't get off all fours, there's no way he's gonna beat a bear trained in muay thai. Just sayin'.

    See, that was my "logic" exactly...if you can call it that. :D They're some mean so-in-sos and the big'ns have sharp tusks and know how to use 'em. They can slice and dice about as good as it gets and that shield over the shoulders is probably pretty bear claw resistant.

    What a critter usually eats has little to do with it. Four of the African Big 6 are vegetarians and hippos kill more Africans every year than the rest, probably combined. Black bears eat more berries and insects than anything. A black bear might win the fight but they're usually smart enough not to fight in the first place. I'd hate to be the bear that had to jump on a 400lb hog.

    You need to either buy lottery tickets or life insurance. A big coon is VERY well equipped to defend itself and will whoop a dog several times its size.

    I've heard of the Big 5 Rhino, Elephant, Lion, leopard, and Cape buffalo and the dangerous 7 add hippo and crocodile to the big 5, but I've never heard of the big 6? What are they?

    I remember when that picture hit the web and the story variably was that it was taken in the Southern US, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida...

    Did anybody else notice that A, that's not an alligator it's a Nile Crocodile and B, That's not a feral hog it's an African warthog. Which kind of narrows down the continent in any case.

    You gotta love the net..:D

    It was my understanding that "they" decided the hippo made six. Whoever "they" are who decide such things.

    No way either could take Manbearpig. It is half man, half bear, and half pig. I'm super cereal.
