Found a few piles of this stuff in our back field. Any guesses on the animal? That is my son's croc in one shot for size comparison.
(it is not out of the question that our pigs got out and wandered back there, but it doesn't look like their normal poo)

Well shoot. Now you got me googling wild animal scat images while I eat my dinner!

I found this pretty cool page: https://www.wideopenspaces.com/can-you-id-these-animals-by-their-poop/amp/

I’m going to guess pig or wild boar. Maybe if your pigs got out rooting around in an area they aren’t used to, the change in diet might have changed their poop. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Oh, speaking of, yesterday I saw some odd scat out in my back field. It looked like white dog poop. I was thinking it must have been really old and got bleached/dried out by the sun. And it was probably either dog or coyote.

You're probably right, just my hogs getting out and having weird stuff in their stomachs...

Too bad, I was ready to do some bear hunting...
