Farmers want population eradicated
Ryan Brook is counting some not so little piggies.
The University of Saskatchewan researcher is heading the first scientific survey of the province’s wild boar population.
He hopes to have his data compiled quickly next year so he can persuade the provincial government to step up its battle against the pesky porkers before their numbers grow completely out of control. It’s a problem he foresees across the Prairies.
“I think the window is closing very rapidly,” says Brook.
“If we don’t take some very serious action over the next two years, then we’re very quickly going to be moving into a position where we’re simply trying to manage and live with wild boar, rather than eradicate them.”
