i would say its not a pig, i thought it may have been but the black bear made more sense although there are 2 farms within a mile of the camera that could have had a pig get lose, but i dont think so.  i'll definatly have to spray the camera down though.

My vote is that it is a  bear.  You might want to look into a lock box as well.  If it is a cub then Mama probably isn't too far away and she could do some damage to the cam.
That's why they call it hunting and not getting

I know it's a black bear. The "no fur" is just an allusion due to the close up nature of the pic, which sort of smears the fur effect. I know this because I got other pics of the bears that were perfect. By the way, the bears seem to have an uncanny way of getting around my cams without getting a pic taken, initially, then get a paw, a head or a bunch of black as the come around on them and play with them. They love to swat the cams around, although the bear boxes do work quite well. I learned the hard way--they wrecked two last year.

Im guessing my sister-in-law. She sometimes goes to that part of the country for conferences. I can't make out if it is wearing earrings or not.  Did there happen to be a shoe or handbag sale nearby? That would confirm it.
