Great Smoky Mountains National Park battling infestation of hogs

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. National park biologists are trying to come to grips with a hog infestation in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

In 2009, the park's hog team removed 620 wild hogs, the third highest since the hog control program started in the late 1950s. Biologists say the hog population spiked last year because of a bountiful mast crop that enabled the sows to produce more than one litter.

If they don't let citizens hunt the pigs, they are going to have a serious disease problem in the next couple of years, and it will have an effect on tourism. Having a few open hunt days could go a long way in getting rid of the pigs. Also, the pigs won't see it coming, since they've become accustomed to lving in a hunter-free zone.


We had a deer tb problem in one of the Detroit area metroparks. The DNR opened the park up to hunters for a weekend, as long as they agreed to turn in the carcasses for the DNR to dispose of safely. It worked-it put a curb on the disease spreading further into Michigan and kept it from affecting what Nugent calls the yearly "deer harvest".
