Texas Pig Bombs

kshn:

Feral Hogs: The massive property damage caused by feral hogs is a growing problem in town and in the country. Liberty County Extension Agent Cory Long said a single hog can wreck as much as an acre of land in one night. He said there are no chemicals that repel feral hogs, so the only approved methods for dealing with them are hunting and trapping. It’s against the law to release them. For more, call the ext. office at 334-3230.

Yes but go ask someone for permission to hunt the hogs on their property and you will be refused. These hunting club hunters don't want the hogs only Deer. They hunt Deer for 3 months and the other 9 months the hogs take over. Then they complain about the hogs tearing up everything.

thank your friendly neighborhood tree hugging nature NAZI. Be it weeds, bugs, hogs, or pests- nothing can be purchased any more, that will kill anything. (god forbid that it would get washed into a watershed in the next rain and bother some endangered minnow or cave cricket.) Frankly, our schoolkids, elected leaders, and adults were better persons back when they were eating foods, sprayed with DDT and such chemicals, that are banned today. Go figure.

I have heard that a hog can eat any kind of poison and it will not kill them. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

Yeah, they can even eat McDonald's Happy Meals and survive!
