Wild Boars Destroying U.S. Ecosystems

Every American hunter loves a good boar hunt.   But apparently they are not so good for the environment or the wild places where we like to hunt them:

“Feral swine cause major damage to property, agriculture (crops and livestock), native species and ecosystems, and cultural and historic resources,” says Keirn. “This invasive species also threatens the health of people, wildlife, pets, and other domestic animals. As feral swine populations continue to expand across the country, these damages, costs, and risks will only keep rising.”

Time for a national pig hunt day?
