Not sure that it is the good thread, but it is something about hunting.

Animal rights activists are a kind of SJW, aren't they?

Female hunter is found dead after apparent suicide 'following online threats from animal rights activists'

Many photos and several videos at the above link

PS I can't tell if Washington DC is included above. ;-)

You know there are swine in Washington just none of the 4 legged ones. Even feral hogs wouldn't do what some of the swine in Washington DC do.

Negatif, I think the blue areas are included in the 2015 area as well as the red areas ... let's just say I know there are a LOT of hogs still in the blue areas of Texas.

That would be a big negatif ... hogs cause a lot of damage and very expensive damage. Here is a field in Texas that has been rooted up by hogs ... it would cost 1000s of dollars to put this field back into operation ...

We do not have spare thousands of dollars to spend on hogs rooting up our fields ... Kansas has been able to contain them at our Southern borders and that is fine with me. If they need help, I will go help. But eradication needs to be the goal. I admit there are some land owners in Texas who choose to exploit the "big business" of hog hunting and do not fully engage in eradication ... but I do not agree with that idea.

Hmm...

So the hogs are big problem for farming.

Well, one solution is to farm the favorite food of the hogs (if there is one over the other) and lure the beasts to the killing fields. There might be business opportunities also, perhaps.

But there is also a war in Finland against the expanding wild boar, mainly because they spread African swine fever virus

But I assume that you don't have that problem over there, yet.

Happy trails.

They are not just a big problem for farming Nero. How beneficial do you think an invasive species like a god damn 400 pound boar is for natural ecology?

Eradication needs to be the goal everywhere they are running loose and farmers who do not properly contain their herds need to be hard punished.

It's a big problem in Texas for sure. I live in one of those red counties in the southern panhandle and a few years ago we saw just a few fields that bordered the Caprock having problems from hogs coming up the draws to feed. A year or two later we had to put electric fences around our seed fields west of the Caprock to keep out the hogs and now we've just moved out altogether from the area. It's one thing to hit a 150 lbs deer on the highway at speed and another to hit a 300 lb. hog as well. I ship to sales reps in South Texas that have to build reinforced barns to keep hogs out or they'll go in and root through the seed bags. We are starting to see more of them up on the Caprock every year though I don't think it will ever get too bad up here as there isn't enough cover for too many of them to hide in and those rifles that everyone has on a gun rack in the pick up to shoot coyotes will kill wild hogs just as well.
