Texas: Professional Boar Hunters

Why do they exist?

"I use the term ecological train wreck," said Mike Bodenchuk, the US Department. of Agriculture official in charge of Texas wildlife issues. "Pigs are incredibly adaptable and they are having an impact on a host of different ecosystems.
"On the beaches, for example, they are eating the eggs of endangered sea turtles. In far western Texas where we have desert landscapes, they are rooting up plants that may not be replaced in our lifetime.
"There isn't any part of the ecosystem they don't impact from watersheds, soils, native wildlife and domestic livestock to ground nesting birds. Just about everything that can be impacted by feral hogs is impacted."


and even more

And just a reminder, this is all our fault...
