Wild Jungle Pigs on Guam Video

My friend and co-worker, Fire Captain Solomon "Sal" Monteverde, is quite the prolific fisherman and hunter. He also told me that he has a whole herd of wild pigs coming down close to his place where he feeds them fresh coconut practically on a daily basis. This is really unheard of here on Guam. Wild pigs stay away from humans as they are running around with big bulls-eyes on their backs. But Captain Sal provided this amazing video.

As you watch this, remember, these are wild pigs. Also a couple of Guam terms you will hear:  Balaku-mature male pig,  Balaka (slang)-mature female pig. And the young man feeding the pigs is Captain Sal's son, Warren, as Captain Sal narrates the video.

Here's the video:

On the other side of the coin, Capt. Sal has been known to harvest a pig or two for......
you guessed it, BBQ!!!!!!

Until next time....

I thought it was amazing also. My friend Sal and his son must have good Karma to have befriended that pack of wild pigs. I have never seen anything like it before.
