    PEARLAND (KTRK) -- The owner of a Pearland business is under fire after a photo showing him butchering a hog in the alley behind his restaurant surfaced on social media. Jimmy Chi, the owner of Tose Steak and Sushi, says the wild hog was given to him by a friend. "It was a wild hog my friend gave me. They went on a hunting trip that I promised them I was going to go on and I didn't. So they shot a couple hogs and gave me one," Chi said. A customer took the photo and posted it to his...

    Feral swine are considered pest species in many countries, including the U.S. They reproduce fast and destroy billions of dollars worth of agriculture and live stock each year. Now more than ever, hunters are trying to kill wild pigs as fast as they can. But there are some dangers. Wild pigs are exactly that - wild. They can be very aggressive, and when hunters get too close, they'll charge fast. If they make contact with a hunter, they'll often bite hard with their razor sharp teeth. See the wild pig video here.

    Isabelle the hog remains “under suspicion” after cops caught her running down a Barrie street while they were responding to a barbecue explosion nearby, police joked in a press release.

Officers were able to corral the pig and return it to its grateful owner. Bylaw officials plan to follow up this week. “It appears the two incidents are coincidental, however “Isabelle” the hog remains under...

    5 min inspiring video showing rider's perspective of 9-11 Harley ride to Wash DC, after permits were denied. VERY moving selection of music --from Saving Private Ryan..? The video maker had some basic knowledge about video editing. This played for me only in Safari, not Firefox (which would permit only the first 10 seconds of the 5 min video), my guess is the music was not licensed. WARNING -- YOUR SCREEN *WILL* GET BLURRY. -- >LINK BELOW <--

    -snip- In the past, Harley’s image was directly correlated to the devoted, young, hard-core, rebels that lived to ride. But the rebels of yesterday have aged, changing Harley’s base demographic. In 1987 half of Harley riders were under the age of 35. Today, the average Harley customer is a white, upper-class, 47-year-old man that rides as a hobby. Problematic? Not really. According to Harley’s 2011, 2012, and 2013 10-Q financial statements, since Q3 2011 Harley averaged quarterly motorcycle sales growth of 6.44%, an EBITDA growth rate of 17.65% and a net income growth rate of 14.72%. And, at a stock...

    Over the years, Jerry Booth has seen many patriotically themed motorcycles but never one as ornate as the one he saw when he traveled to Tennessee a few years ago. Booth, a veteran and the organizer of this year's West Virginia Harley Owners Group Rally, saw the bike at a rally there three years ago. He loved it and the message it carries so much that he invited the owner to the event in Charleston. Tod "Weirdo" Wooldridge, owner of the 1986 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide, happily accepted. The bike is decked out in American regalia. It's painted front to back...

    HUNTERS AND FARMERS AND THOSE WHO LIVE IN THE COUNTRY.....TAKE HEED.... My fellow friends and family, We have killed 57 rattlesnakes on two separate ranches this year. 24 @South bend & 33 @ Murray, since mid May. Not one has buzzed! We provoked one fair sized boy with a stick and he coiled & struck at the stick a couple of times before he buzzed up and rattled. The purpose of this explanation is that I have been hearing the same from fellow ranchers and hunters in regards to the lack of warning with rattlesnakes. I had lunch with a...

The new virus contains genes from a seasonal human H1N1 flu strain and a flu virus common in the swine population called triple reassortant H3N2, said...

    MILWAUKEE - Cities from New York to Denver are giving motorcyclists the silent treatment. That worries riders rights groups, which fear that a wave of ordinances aimed at muffling Harley-Davidsons, hushing Hondas and stifling Suzukis will create a confusing patchwork of laws that motorcyclists won't be able to navigate. The motorcycle industry is concerned it could turn these frustrated riders away. 'From our perspective, this creates enormous problems for us because people notice the one motorcycle that makes a lot of noise,' said Bill Wood, spokesman for the American Motorcyclist Association. 'They don't notice the 50 that pass that don't....

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. - A giant wild hog boasted to be bigger than the near-mythical "Hogzilla" caught in southern Georgia a few years ago has been killed in a suburban Atlanta neighborhood.

He said he hauled it to a truck weight station, which recorded the hairy hog at 1,100 pounds. The Department of Natural Resources did not know whether the hog was a record for the state. "We don't keep records on hogs," said Melissa...

    MIAMI Authorities arrested five men for setting up fights between dogs and wild boars at an Indian reservation in South Florida. The men, including the founder of a boar-catching dog association, were charged with animal cruelty Thursday after a 14-month investigation into the fights at the Seminole Indian reservation near Okeechobee, authorities said. Undercover Seminole police attended a fight on Oct. 9, 2004, in the backyard of a Seminole Indian's home, authorities said. Twenty-one dogs and at least 14 wild boars were involved, they said. Hog-dog fights typically match a pit bull terrier or bulldog against a wild boar in...
