Texas Parks and Wildlife Testing Lethal Baits For Hogs

February 25, 2013

Just running through my YouTube favorites, and saw this recent post from Texas Parks and Wildlife.

The idea of using poisons to control any feral or wild species is always fraught with controversy and challenges.  The foremost, of course, is how do you limit the toxic material to the target animals without spreading it throughout the food chain?  It looks like the TPW work with Sodium Nitrite (a common food preservative) is showing promise.  Will it be effective?  I guess time will tell.  But the video is well made and informative.  Have a look, and let me know what you think.
