Wild Pig Rams Dog Walker, so is Shooting it abuse?

……but……..we already know what the ARs would say……..

Oh the poor pig (boar, whatever..) had one lame foot, so he/she was in pain and had to try and attack the human because it was in pain !!!  So shooting the pig would be……..animal abuse? murder?

If we were to pose that question for the newbie law students, how much ya wanna bet, in an AR legal class, at least 50% or even 75% would find for the pig, and almost no one for the human.  Enough said.
