Wild Hog Explosion

The Wild Hog Explosion is a yearly celebration in the small Texas hill country town of Bandera. A circular corral is set up and some feral hogs from the hill country are rounded up. Two contestants enter the corral. The boar is let loose into the ring and the contestants attempt to capture it and stuff it into a canvas bag. The winner is determined by the fastest time. This whole process is not without some danger - the hogs frequently bite back.
