Sunday's Sun-Gazette had an article regarding the state game commission's concern about the feral hogs. They would like to get rid of all these wild pigs because the pigs "tear up the fields, forests, and orchards with their tusks and hooves". The animals are considered "non-native, invasive species". We have a worse non-native, invasive species doing considerable more damage to our fields and forests with their trucks and rigs than a few pigs could ever do with their tusks and hooves: The gas industry. However, the state doesn't appear worried about this damage to our wilderness areas or our wildlife populations. In fact, they are encouraging and supporting it.
