_MG_3364 LaChewa Unmanaged

Ten days ago I remarked that the wild pigs were starting a new campaign of upheaval and destruction.

We see the damage of the last couple of days activity. The area from a the dam to beyond the first bench is rooted to a depth of 12-15 inches.

One of the real friends of Paynes Prairie reports empty and unbaited traps. I hope that is/was a temporary situation.

History tells us that the pigs are a topic until they appear to be controlled and then the traps sit empty and unused.

Myacka State Park has had a pig problem and used a professional trapper to remove 1100-1500 pigs a year. The traps were many and in view to directly address the issue.

Is it inappropriate to say "un-managed?" The same strategy continues to fail to control the damage - The same mis-placed secrecy continues to defeat a solution.

How about a different option or a different manager?? Part of the solution requires knowing who will not step up and address the issue.

I give the devil his do 'cause if Jowers can't have the money to defeat the pigs then the problem is higher on the totem pole.

He'll say no money but can't point blame on the "uppers" so how do we get a solution??

Regime change ---- please!! The only thing inbred is the Dark Service Management
