FERAL HOGS

 The Agriculture Department has launched a $20 million program to control the nation’s estimated 5 million feral hogs. Since 1982, feral swine have spread from 17 states to 39, costing the U.S. $1.5 billion annually, $800 million in farm damages alone. The program, which began in April, will utilize sodium nitrite, a bacon preservative, as a form of poison.
