Seems like an odd coincidence. This afternoon I watched a special on TV about feral pigs and just how bad and nasty they are. Most of you are probably aware of the problem. For those who may not know, feral pigs are a serious problem in many States and particularly here in Texas. They destroy land, crops, and are dangerous to humans, especially the young and old.
They also breed like teenagers on steroids. So…………………………….what to do? Well, Texans hunt them, trap them and in general do whatever it takes to eradicate them.
Several hours after watching the documentary on TV, while catching the 5 pm news, I suddenly hear the whop, whop of a helicopter. Long story short, a helicopter just like the picture is skimming the ground and hunting feral pigs anywhere from 50 to 100 yards from our gate.
We watched them fly around, up and down, for about 30 minutes. During that time the hunter fired at least a dozen times with a very high powered rifle. Don’t know if he hit anything but they did land once.
