Fox Hollow, FL – When I first heard about this story I thought it was a joke… I’m happy to report that this is not a joke and apparently a pack of wild hogs killed at least several ISIS fighters in Kirkuk which is a province inside of Iraq.
The area of Kirkuk is on the front line of the war between Iraq and ISIS and as a result of the 6-year conflict, many cities within Kirkuk sit abandoned ruins which have been retaken by nature. As a result of nature retaking these ruined cities, apparently, large packs of wild boar have quickly moved to the top of the food chain in war-torn Iraq.
According to a number of independent sources, including the Iraqi Military, a herd of rampaging wild boars overran an ISIS machine gun nest that was hidden within an abandoned farm near the town of al-Rashad within Southern Kirkuk. In total, the hogs viciously killed and partially devoured three ISIS fighters and critically wounded another four fighters. So in total, a gang of feral hogs took out a fortified ISIS machine gun nest.
If this isn’t divine intervention from the Lord I don’t know what is.
Furthermore, the Muslim religion considers ingesting or even touching pork a mortal sin worthy of being sent to Muslim Hell… I wonder what the Quran says about being murdered and eaten by pigs? LOL
Can you say Holy JiHawg!
On a serious note though, this is why I will only hunt wild hog because there is risk involved. Without risk, there can’t be any sport in my view which is why I don’t hunt deer or rabbits because these animals are defenseless. Again no risk then no sport. If you are going to hunt deer and rabbits then why not kill kittens or puppies while you are at it? Some might argue that
Some might argue that it’s all about getting the meat, and while that is a valid point, I can go down to my local Florida country store and pick up 5 pounds of deer meat or rabbit meat for a fraction of the cost and time to go out hunting for it. With a family, work, this blog, hockey, and everything else ain’t nobody got time for that.
So in my book, it all comes down to sport because I can literally purchase the meat cheaper and faster than I could ever hunt it.
Where is the sport in nailing a defenseless deer or rabbit, when you can go toe-to-toe with an animal that can not only kill just about any hunter in America but can also charge a fortified machine gun nest and kill three battle hardened Muslim terrorists in the middle of a war zone?
No exceptions in my book.
In total, I only personally hunt Wild Boar, Alligators, Pythons, and Poisonous Snakes. Not because of the meat, but for the sport and the risk associated with hunting these dangerous items. Although 40 pounds of wild pork and alligator in the freezer isn’t bad.
Down here in Florida you can hunt boar, rattlers, and pythons year round because they are considered nuisances and threats to public property as well as public safety. Alligators, on the other hand, have a season and require a special lottery given permit that is very hard to get. So don’t go out shooting gators for fun. You will end up in prison.
From Iraqi News Today – April 24, 2017:
Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) Three Islamic State militants died late Sunday when wild boars attacked them in southern Kirkuk, a local source was quoted saying.
The animals went on a rampage near a farmland in al-Rashad region, an Islamic State pocket 53 kilometers south of Kirkuk. They attacked the militants and left three killed, according to the source.
Alsumaria News quoted the source saying that “Daesh (Islamic State) militants took revenge at the pigs that attacked the farmland,” but did not clarify the method.
Since emerging in 2014 to proclaim a self-styled “Islamic Caliphate”, IS members have held areas in southwestern Kirkuk, where thousands of civilians had to flee the group’s rule to refugee camps in the province and neighboring cities. Local officials have repeatedly urged the government to hasten with security efforts to liberate IS-held regions in Kirkuk, but the Iraqi government is currently employing its full military power in the six-month-old campaign to retake Mosul… (Read More)
