Pig Tales

There's an interesting report in The Capital Times about the problems feral pigs (Sus scrofa) are causing in Wisconsin. In it, a farmer complains about the significant losses caused by the pigs rooting through corn fields and building humongous nests. The main response of the government so far has been to cull populations by shooting the pigs. Feral pig hunting is legal in Wisconsin with a permit, so the farmers are getting in their shots as well.
