The U.S. isn't the only nation with a feral hog problem. Guam is overrun with pork. Officials in Guam's government decided that this year's Earth Day celebration will include a feral hog hunting derby. On April 14 and 15, Guam will hold its first derby for valid bow and firearms hunters. Offered for hunters older than 18, prizes include rewards for the largest hog killed and the most hogs killed. A pig cook-off might be on the menu for the following week.
If there's a hog problem in your neck of the woods, do you think a hog derby would attract more hunters?
