Feral hog population on the rise in Ark

Mountain Home, Ark. (AP) – Feral hog populations are growing in
Arkansas and wildlife officials are concerned about the damage the
animals are doing to wilderness areas.

Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Officer Chris Majors said
damage by the hogs is evident in all 75 counties in the state.

Majors says trapping the hogs is more effective than shooting
them as a way to contain the population. More hogs can be lured
into a trap, while shooting will take only one hog and send the
rest scattering.

The Game and Fish Commission’s Web site includes a section on
feral hogs and shows how to build a trap.
