    You mention breeds like Rabbit and we are yet not living in Rabbet-land .....
    (With no natural predators,they're impossible to stop once they're established. This I know,though,they're delicious smoked.)
    So we can feed the nation with organic Meat , just need more hunters ...?!

    I was able to head down to Texas in June and experience a Wild Boar hunt and it was a great trip but listening to the rancher and local farmers in the area those things are bad news and just rip up everything in their path. We were on a spot and stock hunt the one night with night vision goggles and saw a pack of them under some trees, the next morning we went back to the same area and the way the ground was ripped up from this small group was incredible.

    I think pigs would be great here! Nothing else left to hunt. Just think ... no matter what the MNR did these things would flourish! They're good to eat! breed like rabbits and weigh 100 times more then rabbits. We've been over run with zebra mussels, gobi's, cormorants, ticks, coyotes, wolves, new wolf species, exploding bear populations, etc etc and yet we survive. All these were supposed to be the end of the Ontario ecosystems! NAH! Never happened .. all hype! On a plus side our aboriginal populations are growing and our game populations are dwindling. This new tasty critter could fill the void quite nicely. And there would lots left for the rest of us! I'm voting PIGS.

    Like Carp (especially including the Common Carp) some seem incapable of understanding the damage that invasive species are doing if they don't have a good understanding of the original environment.

    Wild boars are hunted in drives quite often rather than individually in Europe....

    This one in Romania says you can shoot 15 to 25 or more...

    This one in Italy just no limit

    There are already issue with the large deer population and it's effect on sensitive environments ... imagine thousands of 100lb bulldozers routing around and their effect ...

    Rabbit have natural Predators that help control the numbers. Want to Rabbits with no Predators? look at Australia.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    Look at SW Ontario, European hares are still around from escaped animals back in the 1800s. They have predators here, lots of them, but they still survived just fine, scary as heck. Take an animal the reproduces in similar numbers over a year, give them sharp teeth and 200+lb frames, bad news.

    They had a some wild boar escape from a farm during a harsh Winter near WinPeg a few years back....they are now on the DNR 'shot on sight any day of the year' list. The only saving grace is that there isn't much on the western side of MB that gets bothered by them. So the breed and march onward. Rumours are they quite like the winters north of Kenora and are often spotted up there.

    I'll second that!

    I kind of agree. I mean I wouldn't intro them myself, but if they come, we might be better off.
    They will certainly thrive here and yes, they're total menace for agriculture, but if there's enough hunting, they will be kept in check, more or less.

    We all know there aren't enough hunters and the numbers are dwindling every year, so unless they put a substantial bounty on them, or farmers are willing to pay for an 'agent' to clear his property, these boars will breed faster than they can be shot..like others have said, down south they wish they had never been set free.
