Texas is Pigging Out

Interesting story in the San Antonio Express-News about the feral pigs (Sus scrofa, also known as wild boars or feral hogs) running wild in Texas. While the pigs have been known for years as a bane to Texas agriculture, they've recently been making their way into the suburbs of San Antonio too. Residents are none too happy about it, and some are willing to pay hundreds of dollars to companies that will trap the pigs, hopefully before they have their way with the flower beds.

Bonus points to the Express-News for printing one seriously weird photo of a feral pig (dead presumably) sitting on top of a pit bull in a cage.
