Pig on pig crime...go figure
I raised this beast from a piglet. I eventually put him down when he started getting aggressive.

My neighbor had a wild boar as a pet for years. was crazy to be sitting next to this gigantic beast of a thing as it just wandered around like any other dog.
It occasionally got loose and ran around the neighborhood. harmless, but problem is there are tons of wild boars around here normally, so it could have easily been hunted down and eaten.
Hungry little guy also
Amy the six-month-old pig is quickly becoming the top dog in her obedience class full of pooches, reports The Seattle Times.
Along with the commands and tricks, the 45-lb. swine has also learned more advanced challenges like the chutes, teeter-totters, jumps and balance beams.
The Family Dog Training Center was happy to take Amy into its puppy class, as long as she was housebroken. Luckily the pig was, and she has been learning ever since.

they sometimes get tusks but they dont really use them as weapon like feral pigs do.
so here is the list of domestic pig attack abilities..
1 if they step on your foot,it hurts. A LOT
2 They can nose bump/root a slightly painful area if they do it in one spot long enough
3 they will trample you for anything sweet and tasty or just delicious in general (i was almost trampled to death by a 10 lb juliana pig once over a bite of my cheeseburger)
4 they will make you all sweaty and hot if they decide to fall asleep next to you
5 if you do get bitten, its less painful than a puppy's nip
oh the horror
