Eradicate the feral pigs

I believe that Placer County is a little country and we have our own way of handling things around here. Sure, we could trap every single (feral) pig, but the man hours that would take would just be ridiculous (Journal, Sept. 15). Foreign species are not to be just brought somewhere else to be someone else’s problem. We need to eradicate these feral pigs the cheapest, most effective way possible. People that care about animals so much don’t understand these animals are invaders competing for food resources with deer and other local native animals. Not to mention, pigs tearing up gentle hillsides and creating overloads in stream beds can cause a potential risk of flooding. John Warner, Rocklin
