The blue and white Cessna 150 M is my hangar neighbor's plane.  Landed around midnight back in August and after touching down while still keeping the nose wheel up while letting the plane slow down, hit a hog (pilot said it probably weight 175#, picture on his phone looked like it was at least that) with the right hand landing gear.  Scared the crap out of him, didn't know what he had hit as his sight was blocked from the cowling of the plane being in a high position as he was holding back on the yoke to keep the nose wheel off the ground until it slowed down more.  The little step that sits on top of the main gear punctured the hog's lung.  When he turned around and taxied back to see what it was, the hog was still alive but bleeding out on the runway. 
The wrinkle in the fuselage, right behind where the RH main gear attaches to the fuselage, is barely even noticeable.
Insurance loss adjuster totaled the plane. 
Nice little 150, would be  a great trainer and would probably be a pretty easy fix to reinforce the area where the wrinkle is. 
Insurance asked if he was certain the hog did not hit the prop.  The guy is pretty sure but can't say for certain it did not hit the prop.  There was hair and blood on the step, but no evidence of anything on the prop.  But insurance is saying he can't be sure it didn't hit the prop, so the engine has to be torn down. 
Someone will probably get a bargain.
