Feral swine rooting across Mid-South

As sounders of feral swine continue roaming across Mid-South states, evidence of their presence is easily found.

USDA Wildlife Services is one agency working to reduce populations of feral hogs in areas where farmers are trying to plant row crops.

From helicopters to trapping, they are working collaboratively with other local and state agencies and organizations to curb this seemingly insurmountable problem.
