Having won the wars on terror, cancer & poverty, US now takes on feral pigs

The US Army is on the offensive against feral pigs in and around Fort Benning, GA, training grounds of the elite Rangers. The officer overseeing this is Maj. Bobby Toon, who is known as the base’s Pig Czar. About 2,000 people have been authorized to hunt the estimated 6,000 feral pigs roaming the 75,000-hectare base.

The base is offering a $40 bounty for every pig tail that’s brought in. Hunters must be active-duty, retired military or civilian workers at Benning and must have a licence from the base.

Hopefully this will work better than a similar tactic we’ve been using to bring in Osama bin Laden.
