March of the Pigs

Alas, it's official: Idaho has feral hogs. There was speculation when I was dwelling (We can't really call it living) in Utah for a bit, that they were down there. Feral hogs are a very hard to manage nuisance species - they're fast breeding, highly aggressive, and very adaptable. I was talking to a lady at the ASM meeting in 2009, who told me the odds of eradication in most states is somewhere between zero and zero. She worked on Texas, specifically, which has a very developed problem.
