    Looks like they are talking about those expropriated airports lands.

    That story may be a rehash of the old story that was around quite a while ago. The wild pigs were trapped by MNRF staff. Unless there were recent sightings of more wild pigs, so far,no further sightings have been reported.

    Meant to resurrect this thread today. 2 co workers commuting to working had to swerve to avoid some loose pigs yesterday morning between new Hamburg and Wellesley. A mother and a brood, all dark brown/black

    Or it maybe that the MNRF was as effective at eliminating them as they thought. I suspect it will be just a matter of time before we find out. They say once they get a foothold they breed like rabbits and spread into other areas. The big problem comes if they are hunted, as they tend to go nocturnal. Also they are devilfishes when it comes to doing agricultural crop damage.

    There's anecdotal evidence that the great lake states that adopted the "no hunting" philosophy are now in a position where trapping on an organized basis hasn't a hope of success. Land owners are feeling the financial pinch from damage to property. It's just a matter of time in Ontario.
