Around 20 years ago I was with some friends , in an area known as rainbow valley , like 50 mi. sw. of Phoenix . We were target shooting , like cans and card bord boxes . I saw what I thought was a pack of wild dogs , a friend of mine said no thoes are javalina . I had a .44 mag rev , but I am not a good shot , had no hunting lic. and they were out of season , ect . so I let them be . I have heard they are mean critters . desert rat
