Feral hogs were introduced for something to hunt, or were accidentally released in the wilderness. The problem is real and they are rather destructive to the native flora and fauna. October is Feral Hog Month and is a month devoted to ridding the local areas of wild hogs. Unfortunately they breed like rabbits so hunting and trapping is only a way of reducing their numbers instead of eliminating them. If hogs are in your area and are no part of the natural environment, go out and see what you can do to help stem this problem.
