Feral hogs are a huge problem in Texas.

So much so, that in Texas you can literally book a helicopter seat to go hunting these things (with machine guns) from the air.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “feral hogs cause more than $1.5 billion in damages to property, agricultural interests (crops and livestock), native wildlife and ecosystems as well as cultural and historic resources.”

Additionally, these things will mess you up. Kill your dog. Livestock. Whatever they come across. They’re also reproducing at insane rates. YouTube has even begun flagging some of the hog attack videos as “age restricted” due to the gruesome damage they’ve done to folks and animals.
