What type of Damage Done

These pigs are affecting our vegetation with disease and eating them. The pigs affect plants and other animals by digging up the homes and using them as breeding grounds. This kills trees plants which will hurt our environment. The breeding grounds other animals to go to extinction which will affect the food chain. No positive impact.


How Much Damage has been done

Wild Boars are so many in numbers the is no exact number. It affects 39 different states in our country. They average 13 baby a time. All that damage plus multiplying that quickly can't get better


Solutions?

There are not many solutions but one of the most common is to get hunters out there after the Wild Boar.


That is Why?

As you can see this species needs the $1,000,000 to be stopped.
