    An old movie, late 60's or early 70's. Disturbing would have been a better title. Takes place in southern Appalachia in the eastern U.S. Amongst various disturbing scenes, Ned Beatty was forced by a hill billy to uh....act like a hog.....a hog that was being "serviced" by a boar. The boar being the hill billy.

    Sorry Bluey. Phoenix Phil explained it perfectly. No insult intended. It was something that just jumped to mind. It was a disturbing film. Didn't also star Burt Reynolds. He was the bow hunter that put a cloth yard shaft through the offending individuals throat?

    The Feral cats in Aus are huge! I was part owner of a Bow Hunting publication there in the late 80's and early 90's and the pics and articles submitted were astonishing. Feral Tabbies weighing 30 lbs plus?! They are a problem as they are wiping out several species of indigenous birds a years reportedly. The same goes for the Feral Foxes there too.
    Aus has several Feral problem animal species. Cats, Foxes, rabbits, frogs, horses, camels to name a few!

    I know what you mean Ole Bally. I lived on the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales and came across a feral cat which later weighed 29lbs. It took 3 shots from a 243w. The first one should have killed him, the second I thought really put him down. I went to pick him up and he took a swipe at me broken back and all. The final shot layed him to rest. I can only imagine what a leopard would do to you if you didn't show it the respect it's due.
