Over the passt few years, we have been hearing a lot about feral hogs in our area. They cause a lot of damage and are quite a nuisance in several places.

A number of local hunters have killed some, our Conservation Department encourages this, as they destroy food sources and habitat for other species.

Today I made a journey with a friend, and for the first time actually saw somwe of them. On a country road there was a group of about 20. Seeing them made a much better picture in my mind of the damage they can do. These were on the edge of a farm, rooting around and tearing up the field.

It is a problem, I hope it can be controlled as time goes by.
