The state of Michigan is only days away from engaging in what can only be called true "animal genocide" -- the mass murder of ranch animals based on the color of their hair. It's all part of a shocking new "Invasive Species Order" (ISO) put in place by Michigan's Department of Natural Resources (DNR). This Invasive Species Order suddenly and shockingly defines virtually all open-range pigs raised by small family farms to be illegal "invasive species," and possession of just one of these animals

correct me if im wrong but isnt natural news a sensationalist website neway?
all these laws come from the sheep in the southern part of michigan. your going to have a hard time finding people in the north that will blindly follow a law like they do down by me in detroit
I hope hundreds of cops swarm on family farms to attempt to destroy various families' livliehood and are shot and killed for their effort. This would be a big freaking wake up call to both the federal and state governments that we are fed up with them. And yes I know you scum are whatching and listening.

Your farm subsidy tax dollars at work.
USDA is more interested in seeing farmers grow crops for ethanol fuel and high fructose corn syrup than see farmers actually grow crops or raise animals for - oh, I don't know - FOOD.
This is the biggest reason food prices are so high, that most of the arable land in the USA is being subsidized to grow non edible crops (you can't eat the corn grown for ethanol or HFCS).
Food price increases have nothing to do with the cost of gasoline, as the MSM would have you believe.
Wild boar, wild hog, wild swine, feral pig, feral hog, feral swine, Old world swine, razorback, eurasian wild boar, Russian wild boar (Sus scrofa Linnaeus). This subsection does not and is not intended to affect sus domestica involved in domestic hog production.
Here's some of the language from the Michigan document describing which animals are to be destroyed. Remember: For a pig to qualify as "feral" according to state tyrants, it only has to exhibit ONE of these traits, not all of them:
1) Bristle-tip coloration: exhibit bristle tips that are lighter in color (e.g., white, cream, or buff) than the rest of the hair shaft.
2) Dark point coloration: exhibits "points" (i.e., distal portions of the snout, ears, legs, and tail) that are dark brown to black in coloration, and lack light-colored tips on the bristles.
3) Coat coloration: exhibit a number of coat coloration patterns: solid black, solid red / brown, black and white spotted, black and red / brown spotted.
In its enforcement of the ISO and Part 413 of 1994 PA 451, as amended, the MDNR will use phenotype to identify Sus scrofa and distinguish it from other species. Identification may include use of one or more of the following characteristics (Mayer and Brisbin 2008):
• Bristle-tip coloration: Sus scrofa exhibit bristle tips that are lighter in color (e.g., white, cream, or buff) than the rest of the hair shaft. This expression is most frequently observed across the dorsal portion and sides of the snout/face, and on the back and sides of the animal’s body.
• Dark “point” coloration: Sus scrofa exhibit “points” (i.e., distal portions of the snout, ears, legs, and tail) that are dark brown to black in coloration, and lack light-colored tips on the bristles.
• Coat coloration: Sus scrofa exhibit a number of coat coloration patterns. Patterns most frequently observed among wild/feral/hybrid types are: wild/grizzled; solid black; solid red/brown; black and white spotted; black and red/brown spotted.
