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.

Whenever Willie Nelson, who's quickly approaching his 87th birthday, isn't on the road again, or raising money for American farmers as co-founder of Farm Aid, the country singer is looking after his beloved horses on his 700-acre Texas farm, which he calls "Luck Farm".
