I’ve tried many times to feed snakes to my pigs and they won’t touch them. They eat a or of other wild game from roadkill deer to squirrels to leftovers from butchering chickens. Always surprised they won’t touch a snake, it will sit in their pen and rot. Obviously not wild hogs but they’re not inside farm meat pigs either.I have managed a large hunting property that is infested with rattlesnakes and hogs the past 2 years.
Lots of the snakes I encounter are missing rattles and have wounds on them. Locals told me hogs were not affected by rattlesnake bites. They tell me the hogs will actually kill the snake and eat it.
I have wondered if this is the reason I see many with missing rattles and scaring.
I am not sure.
