Can’t sleep. A peccary (plural peccaries; also javelina and skunk pig; Portuguese javali and Spanish jabalí, sajino or pecarí) is a medium-sized mammal of the family Tayassuidae, or New World pigs. Peccaries are members of the artiodactyl suborder Suina, as are the pig family (Suidae) and possibly the hippopotamus family (Hippopotamidae). They are found in the southwestern area of North America and throughout Central and South America. Peccaries usually measure between 90 and 130 centimetres (3.0 and 4.3 ft) in length, and a full-grown adult usually weighs between about 20 to 40 kilograms (44 to 88 lb).
Pig family, rodent ancestors and they want to tak back Arizona for their families. Kinda like a big fuzzy and sometimes friendly rat / pig, they are eaten by the Indians who say (yum) good eatin. The Mexicans (Indians mostly too) like them for Tacos de cabeza, or toacos of the head.
So what does that have to do with Jesus. I mean, 100 people die in Jos Nigeria because of bombings and violence and I need to preach the Gospel around the world. Still, the neighbor has a standard poodle (read that big dog) and the Javalena (Spanish J here, read that Havalina) have taken to being upset with her. She is a hunting kind of dog and big and they are concerned that she will eat their young.
Ok, I have to deal with it all because the neighbor lady that owns the dog doesn’t want the dog to attack the Javalena and rightly so. The Javalena like to circle the dog and attack as a pack, eating the dog in the process.
Now, these tame looking pig like big rats without tails that look really friendly, can kill a dog or a dude or dudette very quickly. They would rather eat sweet fresh fruits and flowers but you are on the menu. So, missions 1,035, spray with cleaning solvents or dish soap with ammonia. They do not like the smell of cleaning solvents and get offended and go away.
I am out in the middle of the night, spraying the dogs territory with biodegradable detergent that smells fine to me but something akin to javalena – off to them.
Course, you could just eat ’em.
Back to saving the world.
