Everett Griner talks about feral hogs hitting the Southwest hard in today’s Agri View.

feral hogsI did a report just a couple of weeks ago about the efforts in the southeast. Well now, let’s take a look at the southwest. Texas in particular. Texas has 254 counties. Feral hogs have been found in every one of them. They have actually been found in some of the largest cities.

They are not only destructive. They are dangerous. They do most of their damage at night. And, if you can’t defend yourself, you don’t want to be anywhere close to them.
