What I want to know is what happens to those feral pigs when captured? I’ve watched a few episodes of American Hoggers (or whatever its called), and the hoggers put great effort into capturing the hogs. What do they do with the captured hogs afterward?
See... there’s these kinds of food at the store... it has names like “BACON” and “PORK CHOPS” and “LOIN ROAST”
If all else fails, you can call it “DOG FOOD”...
On the PC television shows, they are taken in a truck to some “hog relocation center.”
In reality, they will most likely be shot in the pen. If deemed healthy, they are butchered.
A great post. The parables to modern life need to be read by many. Going to put a link on my FB page.
There’s a market for the meat. Some trappers have contracts with buyers.
Some of the pigs are too nasty and infected to eat. Those which are healthy are very, very tasty.
First hand experience.
When I was in high school, one of my best friends family captured wild hogs on a regular basis.
They did it with dogs and would literally let the dogs bay them up and grab them by the hind legs then drag them to a portable pen which was then loaded on a pickup.
They would then keep them penned for a month or more feeding them whatever they fed them fattening them and eventually butchering them.
I don’t recall any of his family ever getting hurt but their dogs all were scarred up from fighting the pigs.
