I smell bacon!!

Hurray for the Galapagos Islands! Declaring one of their largest islands finally free of feral pigs, conservationists can congratulate themselves for winning a hard battle in what will probably be a long war. Feral pigs (Sus scropha) are very destructive, and there are several native species that will benefit from their absence.
