Ok, let's look at this again. With common sensv. To the general public, Venomous means dangerous, even deadly. Fangs to the general public, means hollow pointy delivery systems , like a syringe. Hogs have neither of these. And are not dangerous. If you were bitten by a common sand shark(which have no teeth)on are beaches here in the mid Atlantic, would it not be misleading to tell people the rest of your life that you were bitten by a shark? This is similar to what is being done with Western Hogs. Calling them Rear(Fanged)Venomous is misleading in my opinion. All the science there is won't change my mind in this regard. Using common sense, we see that these are harmless small snakes that can be unfairly seen as dangerous to the general public and the powers to be. Again it is wise to tell anyone who buys a Hog from you that once in a while people do have a non life threatening reaction to a bite.
