    Feral hogs headed for US from Canada; wildlife officials warn of widespread damage


    An underreported threat along America's northern border has U.S. officials and local residents warning of widespread damage due to the reckless invaders: Feral hogs from Canada.

    At least eight pigs have been spotted in Canada, just above the border with Lincoln County, Montana, according to officials.


    Wildlife Services, the Montana Invasive Species Council, the National Feral Swine Program and the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks department say the pigs could cause significant damage.

    My uncle got some feral cattle once when a truck wrecked and they escaped. About two weeks later they showed up on his farm. Owner said to keep them because insurance was paying off. Insurance company said they would have removed if he wanted but otherwise he could keep them for free.

    Thanks for the early Christmas gift, mate! We can hunt them from helicopters, with all those AR-15's we have here. :biggrin:

    Time to declare a bounty on each pig killed. Maybe their meat could processed into some sort of low grade feed.

    I saw a program that showed feral hog hunting in Texas...They're elusive beasts that breed like rodents...I only wish rubbing them out were that easy.

    If this is true, the northern states are in for a major headache.
