Hi Chirpy
From The Desk Of Jetta
Wild Hogs A Nuisance That Originated With Desoto. Pt 1

If you've hiked in a wildlife area and found ground-up terrain, you can blame Hernando Desoto.

Desoto brought 13 hogs to Florida from Cuba in 1539.It's been downhill for land managers ever since.

If there's a part of Florida's Spanish heritage land managers wish they could undo, the introduction of wild hogs to the state would rank high on the list.

Feral hogs, the descendants of the livestock Spanish colonists brought to the New World, cause millions of Dollars in damages each year to public and private lands.
But they have their fans: HOG HUNTERS.....
