Hi…. The pot bellied pig study has been done just in time but whether the local authorities will act on it is another thing….
The fact that we found only a few cases of
apparently successful establishment of VPB pigs
in the wild suggests they are not yet abundant in
our setting. However, previous experiences suggest
that calls for early management action are required,
because by the time released exotic animals are
publicly recognised as a problem, it is often too
late for effective action, due to logistic, economic,
or scale factors.
Basically… Cull them now before the situation gets too expensive or the hybrids get too numerous to control…
Breathe and try to be nice to people 🙂
