    Interesting article in The Economist on the spread of feral pigs in the US

    http://www.economist.com/news/united...e-pork-chopped

    I couldn't help but smile at their culling of hogs from helicopters, made legal under what became known as the "pork chopper law"

    That aside, will be interesting to see how long before similar articles appear here in the UK.
