05:32 PM ET 10.17 | Tyrann Mathieu, the man formerly known as "The Honey Badger," has been staying out of trouble and has been living in the mountains outside of Phoenix. During his time in the mountains, Mathieu has had some interaction with a few wild boars that are known as "javelinas." When the wild boars come face-to-face with The Honey Badger, we know who wins. Mathieu said that he pulls out his trusty slugger and shows off his old skills from his days on the diamond. That's right, Tyrann Mathieu chases wild boars around his yard with a bat.

Interesting, but wouldn't a .38special be a bit more practical?

Maybe, but this way he also gets an aerobic workout.

Guy would bring a bat to a gun fight. Athletes...

Eventually, those wild boars will get him. Don't care how much bat speed he's got.

I'd probably go with a 30-30.

They scatter when he opens the front door. Non story.

Living in Phoenix and reading the local paper cover to cover each day, I've yet to hear a problem with the javelina population. He saw one once and a desperate journo is trying to get some run with it.

A bat wont stop a javalina. I hope he gets gored. It would be fitting. From drugs to animal abuse!

He probably saw one and swung the bat defensively as the thing got too close. Probably ran away like a "female dog".

The wild boars just aren't hungry enough yet. Soon they will attack and eat him or take the bat away and beat him with it.

Here piggy, iggy, piggy!

Whap!!!

Javelinas are much smaller than wild boars or feral hogs. Also known as peccaries. As in Gregory Peccary, the nocturnal gregarious wild swine.
