Mexican officials have unveiled plans to slaughter some 50,000 wild boars that have crossed the border from the United States and now threaten agriculture in Mexico.

The Ministry of Environment in Chihauha state said some 1,500 hectares (3,700 acres) of farmland in the border town of Ojinaga have been affected by the large number of feral pigs that have come from Presidio County, Texas.

"We must get rid of these European wild boars because they sleep overnight on US soil during the day and cross over to the Mexican side to feed," Ignacio Legarreta, a state official, told local media.

The boars of European origin, which were imported to Texas as pets and then replicated in the wild, have caused serious damage to the flora and fauna of the area, officials said.

These animals have no natural predators and are a pestilence in Texas, Florida and most southern states. Ask any rancher in southern Texas and they will tell you that they welcome this.

I have been watching Lady Hoggers the last couple of nights. Pretty good show when nothing else is on.

The boars are killing neighborhoods daily in Texas and wiping out crops and land, so this isn't a big deal to me.

I watch those shows a bit too and am always baffled as to why they feel the need to catch them by hand. Are they not aware of those things called guns?
