    I can see an angled shot being deflected into a hard surface that would then ricochet back at the shooter. It says shooter was hit in the jaw and had to have it wired shut. Pretty sure that means a whole lot of energy was spent before the bullet got back.

    Damage from burrowing I get. Here in Michigan it is woodchucks aka ground hogs. Livestock falls into burrow openings, barns fall into burrows. Not making that up, had a friend who had the floor of the hay wagon bay crack. Burrows had excavated so much dirt from under the foundations that the floor joists of logs cracked. His process was use a .22 for a body shot when he saw them out in the field, they would scoot down the closest burrows and self bury. Now if they are in your back yard they may have a burrow under your shed or house where decomposing critters are not welcome so shoot them further out! It ain't like they are fast.

    Would they make good hog bait?

    Scrap.... because all the really pithy and emphatic four letter words were taken and we had to describe this way of getting casting material somehow.

    Anything is good hog bait. Even another hog.

    Had a buddy that would trap them.
    A few times he run the trap and there would be 2-3 live hogs, and a spare dead one--- half eaten.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.
