30-50 Feral Hogs: Why This Isn't a Joke

If you've been online in the past two days, you might have noticed that the internet is erupting with memes, jokes, information, and even an interactive game, about 30-50 feral hogs. What the heck is going on, you might ask? Well, what started out as a serious question by a Twitter user amidst America's seemingly never-ending gun reform debate is nonetheless a genuine question that we must address. The famous question goes as follows: "Legit question for rural Americans - How do I kill the 30-50 feral hogs that run into my yard within 3-5 mins while my small kids play?". While the specificity of this question has driven many to hilarity, feral pigs in America are no laughing matter. They can wreak irreversible damage on ecosystems, endanger native plant and animal species, and can even harm or kill humans. Here's what the deal is with feral pigs in America.

This adorable little guy wandered into the midst of a cow family who started to care for him as one of their own.  The farmers who owned the cows named him Johann.

The cows lick him clean and let him snuggle with them just like they would a baby of their own species.

When media caught on to this wild pig's foster situation the attention got to be too much for him and he relocated with a new group of cows in a different meadow nearby. Amazingly, his new foster family accepted him as well and now he happily forages for bugs and acorns near his new grass-eating moms.

Baby boars are furrier and fiercer than their domestic piggy cousins, but who doesn't like to squee on the wild side every now and again?

Nope, there's absolutely nothing uninteresting or ordinary about the squeeness of these little boar babies, if you ask me!
