Texans Fight Hog Infestation With Bombs, Choppers, Automatic Weapons

Excerpt from Dow Jone’s Heat Street

Guns, Helicopters, And Now… Explosives. Heat Street and our partners at Free Media recently took a trip down south to see how Texans are dealing with their feral pig problem. There are currently more than 6 million wild hogs on the loose in America – tearing up crops and infecting waterways. With $1.5 million in damages each year, Texans are free to use almost anything to eradicate the pigs, including blowing them up.
