Uncle Ted helping on so many fronts; providing tourism dollars, control agricultural pests, protecting the environment and providing hundreds of pounds of organic, non corn fed and pesticide free food to the needy.

Sure, but the gun nuts will still find a way to criticise the effort!

You figured you'd get an argument? You think most people here actually object to controlling the feral pig population?

Huh. Fascinating.

Of course, the fact that the feral pig population is out of control is unrelated to, and does not alter, the fact that Ted Nugent is a child rapist. That's a completely different issue.

Cool nothing says "Here, hold my beer and watch this" more than flying in a helicopter and shooting 750 rounds a minute. Sure gives you a lot of time to make sure of your target. But we know Ted is full of pickles so this probably never happened.

I know one county where they are an especially bad problem and it turns out it was a county judge that introduced them so he would have something to hunt. You dress em and I'll cook em. Of course the idea that they are pesticide free is wishful thinking. Few places on Earth are free of pesticides.

Best pig I ever ate was cooked in the ground, wrapped in a layer of papaya leaves, then a layer of banana leaves, then wrapped in wet burlap. It cooked all day and melted in your mouth.

It is 2013, you can run but you can't hide; agreed!

However as opposed to grocery store swine, no comparison in levels.
