Example text

Ossabaw Island Hog The Ossabaw Island Hog is a critically endangered hog, found on Ossabaw Island off the Georgia coast (near Savannah). They are usually black, but can be black with white spots or light-colored with black spots. The adults are quite hairy, with heavy bristles on their head, neck, and topline. Their snouts are long and slightly dished, and their heads and shoulders are heavy (which seem out of proportion to the rest of their body, but which actually provides them with speed and agility).

0. The Ossabaw Hogs are descended from the pigs that were brought over in the 16th century by the Spanish explorers, and which were released on the island. DNA analysis finds that the pigs originated in the Canary Islands, which would have been a stop for the Spanish en route to the New World. The Ossabaw Island Hog is an unusual and important specimen for scientific study, largely due to the fact that the animal has been isolated on an island—meaning that the Ossabaw Island Hog is the closest existing genetic representation of the historic stock brought over by the Spanish.

Some keepers that I have spoken with have had good luck using just an electric fence. Some were using only a couple strands, while others used a portable electric fence so that they could move their animals around (this also helped with pasture management). Although this can work, electric fences are usually used for reinforcement of other fencing and as pasture management.
