Default Hog or Bear ??

I have been looking at pictures from past years and came across this one taken in Feb. of 2011 at Sherburne WMA. I had never given it a close look..... and assumed it was a big hog.

I am no expert on identifying hogs vs. bear pictures, but to me the fur and ears on this animal just don't look like a hog.

What is your opinion?

I donít know how low your camera is but to me it looks like either a small bear or a really big raccoon

That's no bear or no pig. It's a coon.

I studied my pic some more. The camera was about 2.5 feet off the ground. The "raccoon" looks bigger because it was up on a limb only a few feet from the camera. Here is where the camera was hidden.
