Wild boars, feral hogs, savage swines — it doesn’t matter what they’re called.
They are pigs gone wild and they’re taking root in Oakland County.
“I have spoken to people during bow hunting season this last fall who have actually happened across some in the Highland rec area,” said state Sen. Mike Kowall, R-White Lake. “They are close to home — that’s basically my backyard.”
The idea that feral pigs are finding their way into the county isn’t far-fetched, surprising or even new — in March 2009, a feral pig wandered through downtown Detroit and made its way into the yard of a family in Warren.
Some pig farmers in Michigan say they fear the state now is in league with major influences in the pork industry and are gunning, literally, for their small-time family operations to take away any potential competition to “Big Pork.”
The issue is a program adopted by the state Department of Natural Resources, which has by administrative order declared one swine species an invasive species and made it illegal to own.
But the farmers say the description of the outlawed swine species makes it possible that their farm-raised and farm-confined animals also could be banned.
Officials with the Bakers Green Acres farm said their operations “may be shut down by a government entity who (sic) has passed a law stating that the breed of hogs they are raising are a threat to neighboring croplands.”
The statement continued, “In truth, the Big Pork Industry has been planning this campaign to take down all family farms with hopes to eventually [seize] complete control of the American food supply.
At Natural News, Mike Adams explained, “The state has said it will ‘destroy’ these pigs beginning in April, potentially by raiding local farms with government-issued rifles, then shooting the pig herds while arresting the members of the family and charging them with the ‘crime’ of raising pigs with the wrong hair color.”
