feral hogs are overrunning America, especially in the south and west.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

some folks in Texas are offering hi-tech hunts that entertain sportsmen and get rid of the pests.

"I believe every man in the U.S. has a tactical gene," said Rod Pinkston, an Army veteran and former Olympic sharp-shooting coach whose Jager Pro guide service conducts high-tech hog hunts in western Georgia. "They've always wanted to be a soldier, a SWAT team member. We're the closest thing to combat that these guys are ever going to experience."

exotic/misplaced animals are a plague.

An introduced species, they deprive wildlife like white-tailed deer of their habitat.

Plus, I have heard they are quite tasty. I am hoping to cure my own wild ham this autumn

Are they 100 percent sure these are Porcine?
that none of these are walking on two legs, wearing sweats, and lined up at the drive-thru feeding troughs?

You've never been hog hunting. They are smarter than any other animal except a dolphin. Far smarter than a dog or horse or even a monkey. Their snout gives them an incredible sense of smell--as good as a deer. They can detect and foil traps as well as any fox or coyote.

They pose enough of a danger that in much of east texas, workers will not go out in the woods alone without a pistol.

I have a friend who was surprised by, and gored in the thigh, by a boar---he almost bled to death, and will walk with a limp for the rest of his life. The encounter lasted less than 20 seconds.

City people have no idea what the hell the natural world is really like.

Much gross ignorance displayed here about feral hogs. They are sweeping the country.
They are little, biological bulldozers.
Those tough snouts can uproot small trees, yards, fences and while fields of crops overnight.
There is never any doubt when they have been at work.

Outside of man, about the most destructive animal known in their quest for a meal.

For those siding with Feral Hogs ,you have never confronted some
second the ground they root desecrates he land and nothing will grow there but sticker bushes and nothing else not even grass will grow there again.
