Feral Hogs Flourishing This Year in Texas


Feral Hogs Flourishing This Year in Texas

12 October 2007 at 1:14:50 PM

May have to make a Hogcatraz cage!

Thanks to an exceptionally wet year wild hogs are flourishing.

Erath County Trapper Ronald Rhoades said more piglets per litter have survived this year due to lush vegetation providing cover from predators such as bobcats and coyotes.

Rhoades said he has trapped approximately 200 animals this year.

But, that\'s not many, when one considers statewide estimates go as high as 4 million. Rhoades said nobody really knows for sure how many are out there, but without a doubt the critters outnumber the deer population. He said he\'s not sure anything can be done about the thousands roaming freely around the countryside.

I\'ve seen a lot of deer out here but no hogs. Thank goodness!

I should have answered this sooner-here's where you should call-down to the Erath County courthouse and ask for the trapper's number. I'm assuming he works for the county .. if he doesn't, then someone in the clerks office or your county commissioner ought to know how to get hold of him.
