An expert at Texas A&M says we have to do something to control the population of feral hogs -- or they will take over. The state agriculture commissioner has a plan to use human blood thinner to kill the animals which cause 50 million dollars in damage every year.
“Fences can be torn down, the hogs will then migrate through,” says Texas A&M animal science professor Dr. Ron Gill. “That allows livestock to escape on highways. It's a public hazard.”
Gill says the hogs are found almost everywhere.
Agriculture Secretary Sid Miller has called the situation a "feral hog apocalypse." His plan to use blood thinner has received mixed response.
There has to be a strategy,” Gill says. “They will take over. We have to do something.”
