151. JAVELINA. Mounted specimen of a javelina pig,
wearing a navy blue bandana. Fine condition.
Haley gave the bandana to Pingenot, who accorded it a special place of honor by placing it around the neck of this fiercely fanged creature. Pingenot kept this javelina in his library, which always gave Pingenot's family and friends a chuckle. It is not surprising that a solid borderlander like Pingenot would enjoy having such an icon of the Brush Country prominently displayed in his library.
