Wild boars, not native to the region, have possibly escaped game farms and are rampaging through farms in Central New York. They have been attacking/killing livestock/family pets and have been chasing down people though no humans have been killed as of yet. There could be as many as 200 or more of these boars running around.
Their skulls are so thick that they have to be shot in the head at a perfect 90 degree angle or the bullet will glance off their head.
Lack of money prevents the USDA from controlling the populations of these boars. Maybe if the USDA gave up harassing Amish farmers or if we stopped paying for the study of baboon feces, we could fork over the money to deal with this problem before someone dies. Read here: Rampaging boars
