There's perhaps no place in the U.S. where pets face more dangers than in Phoenix, Ariz. One animal in particular has a reputation for attacking pets of all sizes — the javelina, a hooved beast with razor-sharp tusks. To find out if the creature is as aggressive as people say he straps a stuffed dog to a remote-controlled vehicle and drives it into the cage of a captive javelina. An onboard camera records the attack … quick, violent, full of teeth and tusks.
