Hogs In City; Feral hogs are now invading a local city !

This am's local news had a story of feral hogs that included both still pics and also a cellphone video as a 300 lb+ boar destroyed some folks outside table and chairs as well as raiding their garbage cans and then to add insult to that it uprooted a couple of their shrubs. There were a total of 6 hogs with the one mentioned above being the ring leader and they chased one kid waiting for the school bus. The people called the local animal control and were told that they were not equipped to handle hogs so they called the DNR. Of course the DNR simply gave a statement saying they were hiring a " professional " hunter to take care of these hogs. With them being inside the city limits the " professional " hunter will have to use archery equipment. As we know once these hogs are hunted they will either leave or turn nocturnal and the chances of killing them all are slim to none. One would think that the DNR would simply use hog traps but they choose to " sub " out the dirty work I reckon.

Feral or escaped? Somebody might be missing a couple of Durocs, Yorkshires, or Poland China's in the nearby area!

Neighbors need to man up and let someone just SHOOT them. A 300 pound hog chasing a kid should be all they need to know. Of course, SOME folks would always squawk and call the law about those poor innocent animals.

The city hired one of those " wild life removal specialist " and they set a trap with corn, dog food, and molasses and the hogs won't go near it. The so called specialist and the TV reporter were shown yesterday running after the hogs but as usual the hogs ran to the edge of the woods and stopped turned around and stood there looking at them like they were saying " Look DUMBASSES you can't catch us ! " and of course they had film of the hogs just standing there. I do believe I heard they are now going to try a " professional hunter " using archery gear for an attempt to kill the hogs. I predict that he will not be successful and the hogs will as usual turn nocturnal and do all their damage at night. DUMBASSES !!!!! I have considered calling their city manager and telling him that I could along with a couple of friends kill the hogs for a nominal fee of course and if not successful then no pay. They are going to have to pay this other feller whether he kills them or not.

I keep a heritage rough rider 22 revolver with a magnum cylinder on my truck just for hogs. Have popped two sows with it in my
moms garden she lives 400 feet from new city limits in collinwood tn. GW's keep telling everyone there are no hogs near the city. They are just to lazy to go look. Couple years back there was a pic in the news paper of three big sows hit by a
Diesal truck half a mile out of town. No distance at all for hogs to travel. e522684
