I have heard that there is an island on the delta where you can drive up and feed pigs. They are supposedly quite tame and appreciative of people's kindness. Anyone know where this is?

I have heard that rumor for years. I always thought they must be talking about Lost Isle as that place was loaded with exotic creatures running around wild.....they even had a few of the four legged kind there too. Hope someone knows more

Had a friend that raised russian black boars to hunting clubs. We fed them the left overs after cleaning tuna. Only thing left were the tails and fins. My dogs would bark at all the farm animals they had...'cept the russian boars. They froze in place without a peep.

Here you go. Don't think this island is accessible by the asphalt slough, though.

Thanks. If it was, they all would have been butchered by now. Even so, I still fear for their safety. But food should not be a problem if they eat Hyacinth.

There are a few pig videos on YouTube. Looks like they arrived in 2014.
