The U.S. Has A ‘Super-Pig’ Problem and They’re Doing Billions of Dollars in Damage
There are about nine million feral hogs in the U.S., and they're starting to breed a type of 'super-pig' that is devastating to natural ecosystems.
Leave it to 2020 to be the same year that brings us murder hornets and super pigs.
WBTW News 13 reports that these super pigs are the result of domestic breeds and European wild boar crossbreeding. So, they have the best(?) attributes of both breeds. Neat.
So, what exactly are the characteristics of a super pig? Well, they're pretty smart, have amazing senses or smell, and have the physical attributes of a wild boar that make it easier for them to survive in the wild.
On top of all of that, they also have four tusks that never stop growing, and are ALWAYS fertile and can have litters up of to ten at at time.
