Seems that this is my year then (if 1983 was the year of the pig too). Smile

(in proper English, this is the year of the BOAR, not pig, and the wild boar is a formidable opponent, easily capable of killing a human without weapons.)

Although hunters have proven they can do a good job reducing deer populations, wild boars are a different story. In the first place, they are reportedly smarter and harder to hunt than deer, as well as breeding like rats. And I'm not sure how many pigs the average sportsman would want to process and put in the freezer — one killed near Houghton Lake this fall tipped the scales at 400 pounds. That's a lot of pork, and a lot of work.
In medieval and earlier times, the boar was respected as a dangerous quarry, and a boar hunt wasn't for the faint of heart. After the hounds brought the great beast to bay, the hunters would dismount to kill the pig with a spear or even a sword. A spear for pigs had a metal disc about halfway down the shaft to keep the hogs from forcing themselves along it to get at the hunter.
Thus, "pig", "boar", and "hog" may be considered synonyms. Here's a true hog:

Yes. The usual English translation of the twelve animals (that are designated) is listed in the webpage of the link provided by HyperVista above.

Perhaps, Australians would call "the Year of the Dog" "the Year of the Dingo" instead! Very Happy

Unlike other dogs, the Dingo chooses a mate for life, sometimes mourning itself to death after the loss of its partner.
