No more rooting in our hay meadows for this guy

Our hay meadows are constantly being destroyed by wild feral hogs.   This was one of about fifteen that entered a meadow just before dark.  He was too large for my atv to handle so I used the loader of our tractor.

One More Feral Pig caught in trap

The feral hogs are smart animals.  They will avoid our traps.  But occasionally, one makes a mistake and he is removed from the farm.  No more destructive rooting in hay meadows for this feral pig.

Hog in Snare

 

Feral hogs at our farm are reproducing at an alarming rate.  Their rooting has destroyed one hay meadow.   This photo is example of their damage.   During the day I’m on our tractor with drag, trying to level the damage.  During the night, they are rooting.
