October Is Hog Extermination Month In TexasS

Feral hogs in Texas are screwed. The heavily armed state within a state has declared October "Hog Out Month," and is encouraging people to kill the beasts for destroying farmland, as well as "yards, public parks and golf courses."

The program is run by the state's Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples, who was offering grants to counties in the hopes of spurring a statewide bloodbath. Texas estimates there are 2 million feral pigs roaming the state and they cause $400 million in damage every year. It's only the 7th, so there's plenty of time left.

Sure it's mean to kill these pigs, but someone's got to think of the golf courses and perfectly manicured lawns of Texas.
