I met a geneticist a few years back that said he had the answer to the pig problem. He had made a boar that would only father boars. It was bigger, meaner, and stronger. All the offspring of said boar would be boars that are infertile but will run off other boars.

Most farmers do not charge for hunts.  They allow trusted outfitters to use their property.  It's the outfitter charging you.  You know, for access and equipment and shit.   Around here it's mostly helicopter hunting.


Letting unknown fucktards with no respect for property trample around your land isn't appealing to most.

The pigs survive extreme weather by tunneling up to 2m under snow, Brook said, creating a snow cave.

"They'll use their razor-sharp tusks to cut down cattails [a native plant], and line the bottom of the cave with cattails as a nice warm insulating layer.

"And in fact, they're so warm inside that one of the ways we use to find these pigs is to fly first thing in the morning when it's really cold, colder than -30, and you will actually see steam just pouring out the top of the snow."

yeah... welcome to NY    this is their logic btw (it only makes sense if they are doing a rapid response):


What are the regulations on Eurasian boar in New York State?
To prevent Eurasian boar from entering or becoming permanently established throughout the state, the following regulations have been put into place:
• As of October 2013, it is illegal to import, breed, or release Eurasian boars in NYS.
• As of April 2014, it is illegal to hunt or trap free-ranging Eurasian boar in NYS.
• As of September 2015, it is illegal to possess, sell, distribute, trade, or transport Eurasian boar within NYS.
Why is it illegal to hunt them?
The most efficient way to manage Eurasian boar is to trap the entire sounder (group of pigs) at one time and eliminate them then. Research and management
experience has shown that hunting wild boar disperses them into smaller groups, costing more time and money to track down each individual. Eurasian boar are extremely intelligent, highly adaptable animals. Many never return to areas where they’ve been shot at and those that do are more suspicious, making them
harder to trap in subsequent attempts. Hunting is also an inefficient and ineffective eradication option due to the boars’ high survival and reproductive rates. Hunters would have to take 70-75% of the population each year just to stabilize their numbers. Prohibiting hunting of Eurasian boar also eliminates the incentive to
illegally introduce new populations for sport hunting.

What if Eurasian boar are destroying my crops or private property?
If Eurasian boar are damaging your property, provisions in the regulations would allow you to shoot these animals with
proper prior approval. Any landowner whose property is damaged by free-ranging boar should contact a DEC regional
wildlife office to determine whether a permit is needed to shoot boar on their property.

Quoted:
For decades, wild pigs have been antagonizing flora and fauna in the US: gobbling up crops, spreading disease, and even killing deer and elk.

Now, as fears over the potential of the pig impact in the US grow, North America is also facing a new swine-related threat, as a Canadian "super pig", a giant, "incredibly intelligent, highly elusive" beast capable of surviving cold climates by tunneling under snow, is poised to infiltrate the north of the country.

https://allthatsinteresting.com/thumb/1200.633.https://allthatsinteresting.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/feral-super-pig.jpg

The emergence of the so-called super pig, a result of cross-breeding domestic pigs with wild boars, only adds to the problems the US faces from the swine invasion.

Pigs are not native to the US, but have wrought havoc in recent decades: the government estimates the country's approximately 6m wild, or feral, pigs cause $1.5bn of damage each year.

In parts of the country, the pigs' prevalence has sparked a whole hog hunting industry, where people pay thousands of dollars to mow down boar and sow with machine guns. But overall, the impact of the pigs, first introduced to the US in the 16th century, has very much been a negative, as the undiscerning swine has chomped its way across the country.

"We see direct competition for our native species for food," said Michael Marlow, assistant program manager for the Department of Agriculture's National feral swine damage management program.

In Canada, like in the US, wild pigs are a relatively recent problem. Up until 2002 there were barely any wild pigs in the country, but Brook said the population has exploded in the past eight years. The animals are now spread across 1 million sq km of Canada, predominantly in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

"Wild pigs are easily the worst invasive large mammal on the planet," said Ryan Brook.

"They're incredibly intelligent. They're highly elusive, and also when there's any pressure on them, especially if people start hunting them, they become almost completely nocturnal, and they become very elusive   hiding in heavy forest cover, and they disappear into wetlands and they can be very hard to locate."

Brook and others are particularly troubled by the emergence of a "super pig", created by farmers cross-breeding wild boar and domestic pigs in the 1980s. The result was a larger swine, which produced more meat, and was easier for people to shoot in Canadian hunting reserves.

These pigs escaped captivity and swiftly spread across Canada, with the super pig proving to be an incredibly proficient breeder, Brook said, while its giant size   one pig has been clocked at more than 300kg (661lbs)   makes it able to survive the frigid western Canada winters, where the wind chill can be -50C.

"All the experts said at that time: 'Well, no worries. If a wild pig or a wild boar ever escaped from a farm, there's no way it would survive a western Canadian winter. It would just freeze to death.'

"Well, it turns out that being big is a huge advantage to surviving in the cold."

The pigs survive extreme weather by tunneling up to 2m under snow, Brook said, creating a snow cave.

"They'll use their razor-sharp tusks to cut down cattails [a native plant], and line the bottom of the cave with cattails as a nice warm insulating layer.

"And in fact, they're so warm inside that one of the ways we use to find these pigs is to fly first thing in the morning when it's really cold, colder than -30, and you will actually see steam just pouring out the top of the snow."

Did you know that what you are claiming to be a "domesticated" pig is a wild pig inside.
If a domesticated pig escapes and lives on its own long enough. The features we associate with the wild version start to come through. When no longer cared for by people. They will physically change toward what we consider "wild’. They physically manifest back to those wild traits. Long hair, cutters, etc.
One of the reasons they are so incredibly adaptable.

Bold is likely, although I wouldn't be surprised if there are a few lone pigs floating around and surviving.  That might become a problem if a pregnant sow gets out and hides.
