Dealing With Invasive Species

We've been working on trapping this sow for a month now. By getting her when we did we took another dozen pigs out of the loop. They are incredibly destructive and displace other native wildlife. This one went over 300 lbs and was well fed. The bad news is that the game camera shows several more. We are thinking of switching to corral traps so that we can catch several at a time.

Thomas and Martin did the hard work.

  1. I realize that it may upset some folks but there is a great feral cat debate going on. Ferals kill billions of birds each year. I see no difference between a feral cat and any other exotic invasive species, such as these hogs, the Burmese pythons in the Everglades, and privet. They all should be eliminated if possible. I take a very hard line approach. The numbers are just too overwhelming to deal with any other way.
