    Big, hairy pig attracted gawkers in Wisconsin

    VIROQUA, Wis. - A steady stream of vehicles pulled along the shoulder of the road to get a look at it: an enormous, hairy pig that apparently had been struck and killed by a vehicle.

    "I took a look to see if it had any tusks," Andy Sherry of Viroqua said. "If it did, somebody got to them before I did. It was really a big, big pig."

    Large populations of the hard-to-find, feral animals are thought to live in southwestern Wisconsin.........

    The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources considers feral pigs an exotic species that poses of threat to both the environment and to agriculture. They can be killed by anyone with a small game license at any time of the year.
    I did not know that.
