Now numbering in the Millions, Hogs Gone Wild has seen an incredible amount of destruction by wild hogs. These shockingly destructive and invasive wild hogs wreak havoc across the southern United States. It’s not just in the back woods anymore! Hogs Gone Wild gets most of our reports from home owners that have hogs tearing up there yards. Golf courses and gated communities are being hit hard and the amount of damage a group of hogs can do in one visit is staggering! The roots below a huge oak tree shading a creek have been dug out and exposed. Hay fields so badly dammaged by wild hogs that farmers cannot run their equipment.
Wild hogs are among the most destructive invasive species in the United States today. Two million to six million of the animals are wreaking havoc in at least 39 states and four Canadian provinces; half are in Texas, where they do some $400 million in damages annually. Texas allows hunters to kill wild hogs year-round without limits, day or night, guns, bows, dogs, traps... pretty much what ever it takes... just kill them!!!
Hogs erode the soil and muddy streams and other water sources, possibly causing fish kills. They disrupt native vegetation and make it easier for invasive plants to take hold. The hogs claim any food set out for livestock, and occasionally eat the livestock as well, especially lambs, kids and calves. They also eat such wildlife as deer and quail and feast on the eggs of endangered sea turtles.
