Hog Stuck for Days Rescued From Abandoned Oil Pit
Occurred on November 9, 2020 / Gladewater, Texas, USA
Info from Licensor: "I was deer hunting and heard a hog in distress. I looked and found an abandoned oil pit from the 1930s with a badly decomposing corpse of a hog along with another younger hog that was buried up to his neck in the pit. I considered shooting the pig and ending its misery but decided that I have harvested many hogs and since I have the chance to save one, I should. The rescue took 40 minutes and was considerably dangerous because I was sinking along with the hog. I eventually freed the animal to both of our relief. However, the rescue cost me my entire hunting season because it ruined my hunting clothes and gear. I do not have the money to replace my clothes or gear. But if given the chance to do it again I would."
