Introduce bears... not there's a bright idea! Here's another one... everyone cover themselves with barbecue sauce before leaving their home.

Same result.

Yep, feral pigs are a big problem in the US.

You see them by the score in every Walmart in the country!

If I'm expecting to encounter boar, that .444 is loaded with two armor-piercing rounds first... those things will split an engine block, so hopefully they'll open up a boar skull. Semi-jacketed hollow points after that.

There's an advantage to reloading.

Wild boar spotted in supermarket

It is thought to have dashed along Station Road and Dockham Road, knocking over an elderly lady, before entering the Co-op store, then running off when it encountered shop staff.

Anyone who sees the animal is asked to contact the police.

You guys need another generation before these wild boar are fully feral. Give it a few years and this'll be the story:

Wild boar spotted in supermarket

It is thought to have dashed along Station Road and Dockham Road, goring an elderly lady, before entering the Co-op store, then devouring several shop staff.

Anyone who sees the animal is asked to pray.

They've got that covered. We can't get near the churches to pray in.

DO FERAL HOGS REALLY ATTACK HUMANS?

. . . when examining worldwide shark fatalities hogs actually beat them out in deaths some years-including 2013.

In his study, hogs that attack are described as solitary (82 percent), large (87 percent) and male (81 percent) and most attacks occurred when there was no hunting involved.

This describes a lone, mature boar, likely territorial that is much more powerful and faster than one might imagine.

There are numerous accounts of hunters (usually hunting hogs with dogs) getting hooked by a boar. These are situations where hogs are cornered and lash out in defense.

The profile created by Dr. Mayer shows an entirely different kind of hog. These hogs attack totally unprovoked.

Old males can start hunting humans. There are stories from the past.

THE king and the Bishop of Durham issued proclamations offering large rewards to whoever could kill the boar, but none succeeded. It gored all-comers to death.

And nature is brutal, I've been shocked before at what life can do to survive.

If something wild decides to do something, it tends to do it. I've seen a crow scrap with a falcon then for whatever reason decided wood pigeons don't deserve their heads.

A friggin crow. Brutality like that creates long lasting memories, not sure what it's deal was but it seemed to like me, I used to volunteer in some gardens and it was often found within a few feet of me when working... Landed on my rake once.

Point being, nature needs to be respected. I had no desire to protect or destroy my little buddy, certainly wouldn't wish it's release on the world so to speak. I honestly think that people wishing to release Hogs, Wolves, Bears or beavers into the wild seldom have a clue about the workings of nature. In fact they often seem clueless.

Nature will kill you, often it needs little excuse to do it either...
