The pig/warthog creature from the Star Trek Klingons. Although beasts, targs are both hunted and eaten, as well as kept as house pets. Targs are identifiable largely by the sharp horns along their backs and a shaggy coat of fur.
Damn, that targ just ate my dog!
Hear is Snuffles, my pet targ. Make sure to keep small children away from her, she may get hungry.
