Porcine Press – Hogs Moving Into Southeast Colorado?
April 30, 2012
I owe Greg, over at the Hunt Wild Pig blog for catching this one. It showed up on his blog earlier, so I thought I’d share it here. I haven’t bothered to check my news feeds in a while, and it’s to my chagrin when the new kid on the block beats me to the draw. But there ya go… the nature of blogging and the Internet.
For those who’ve been following along, feral hogs aren’t new in Colorado, but they’ve been fairly rare. At one point, there was a law in the state that prohibited anyone from offering wild hog hunts for a fee, or even charging trespass fees to hunt wild hogs, but from the sound of this article from the Rocky Mountain News (published in this case in the Wyoming Trib.com website), there’s some question about who, exactly has jurisdiction over feral pigs.
At any rate, the article is worth a read if for no other reason than the writer is fairly entertaining. It also presents some sides of the discussion that we don’t get to hear too often, including the folks who oppose the State coming in to eradicate the animals before they can spread. Check it out.
