A Pig on the Doorstep

I opened the front door this morning to find a giant forest hog on the doorstep. They are very large wild pigs, black in color and standing three feet tall at the shoulder. He (or she) stood looking at the apparition in the doorway, snorted a couple of times and ambled off.

Since returning to Maasai country a week ago, three Maasai girls have asked me for help with secondary school expenses. Nasinyari, Sinyati and the daughter of Neyeyo each need about a thousand dollars for the school year starting in January. I responded that we would try to help depending on what is donated through the website.

    Wow Ned! Last year, I found a cow who broke through a fence of the farm across the street eating my front lawn grass… but a wild hog on your doorstep — that’s crazy! Sounds like the world’s greatest door to door bacon delivery service.

    You were lucky Ned. Reminds me of a time I was picking blueberries from a row of bushes and when I got to the end of the row, on the other side was a bear!! We both stopped, looked at each other, and ran in opposite directions.
