That's a great observation John! Like I said, unfortunately the account was not well written out and obviously the pictures aren't telling the whole story, or they are confusing/contradicting to the incident being told, of that I will agree with you. I guess the only way to find out why the pictures seem to contradict each other would be to ask the site owner and see if we can get a clarification of the story.

From reading the story, I can only imagine two possibilities of why there is a contradiction of the pictures being shown...

#1 She said she had been bitten 2 different times (I assume on different dates), so the thumb bite could be from the first incident and the index finger bite could be from the 2nd reported incident. This is what I believe to be the case but that is merely a presumption based on what she claims.

#2 She said that the hog was deeply embedded in her finger and that they had to push him off, which leaves much to the imagination how they did this, but she could have pushed him off with her thumb ending up having the mouth on her thumb for a short duration. However, I don't think this is what happened.

Regardless, it's a short story but obviously we can see a swollen hand and bite marks on the index finger, the one she claimed gave her the worst reaction of the 2 bites, so that's what I'm really paying attention to.
