beware the feral pigs!

Beware the feral pigs: They fuck like bunnies and are invading the U.S. from the north! They may or may not be a walking billboard for the large-capacity clips that some gun owners are keen to keep in their arsenals.
Feral pigs are widely known as “rototillers.” They root around for their food and spend much of their time wallowing in landscapes from farms and open fields to forests and riparian areas, leaving the terrains unrecognizable. Aside from the damages left behind, they are elusive in nature and often become nocturnal when “hunted or pressured by human activity,” said Ryan Brook, a researcher and assistant professor at the University of Saskatchewan.
The pigs are also highly prolific.
Steuber said females birth around three litters every two years or so, and litters have been known to contain more than a dozen piglets. When grown, mature adults weigh on average between 120 and 250 pounds, but larger ones have tipped the scales at 400 pounds.
“They can decimate the range land by tearing up everything,” said Tahnee Szymanski, an assistant veterinarian with the Montana Department of Livestock.


  1. Feral Pigs!
    Great label for the enthusiastic, moral and intellectually challenged Trump supporters.
    Snort! Snort!

  2. Well I did find a little time to confirm this immigration problem from the north.

    Quite interesting. Over time and generations, feral pigs are reverting to their boar ancestry including manifesting atavistic traits like tusks.

    Your readers should know that these creatures are edible.
    But they’ll need to exercise knowledge and good judgement in selecting feral pigs for consumption before getting out crossbow or sniper rifle.

    “Older boar hogs can be a tad “aromatic” when cooking, but most average-sized wild swine don’t behave much differently in the oven or barbecue than farm-raised pork. As with any other animal, they are what they eat.”

    “When field dressing and butchering, wear rubber gloves and be careful to avoid cross-contamination of hide and meat. Wild hogs aren’t known for being especially sanitary. They’re pigs after all. They wallow in waste, urinate on themselves and leave glandular secretions behind as a calling card.”


    The article provides other advice in selecting, dressing and cooking feral pigs.

    Now I’m wonder if the “Wild Boar” in the local butcher is in fact Feral Pig.
