Peru, New York - September 6, 2011
Wildlife officials in New York are considering measures to prevent the state's wild boar population from going hog wild.
Feral swine are breeding in central and eastern New York, and the state now estimates their population to be in the hundreds.
That relatively small when compared with states like Texas, where biologists estimate the population to be around two million, but they say the hogs multiply quickly.
The boars destroy farm land and crops. In our region, there are an estimated two dozen wild hogs in the Peru area.
Wild hogs gorge on North Country crops
