MORE THAN DOUBLED LAST YEAR. SYDNEY: STARTING SUNDAY… YOU CAN HUNT FERAL HOGS WITHOUT A LICENSE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. THE LAW WAS PASSED DURING THIS PAST LEGISLATIVE SESSION.THE GOAL IS CONTROL HOG NUMBERS.. TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE SAYS YOU WOULD BE BREAKING THE LAW BY HUNTING WITHOUT A LICENSE WITHOUT THE PROPERTY OWNER’S PERMISSION.A HUNTING LICENSE IS STILL REQUIRED ON PUBLIC LAND.FEDERAL OFFICIALS SAY FERAL HOGS COST AN ESTIMATED ONE-AND-A-HALF BILLION DOLLARS IN DAMAGE AND CONTROL COSTS EACH YEAR.ALEX:THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS ALSO TACKLING THE FERAL HOG PROBLEM.LAST YEAR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP INCREASED FUNDING FOR THE “NATIONAL FERAL SWINE ERADICATION PROGRAM” TO 75- MILLION DOLLARS.THAT MONEY WILL TRICKLE DOWN TO STATES WITH HIGH PIG POPULATIONS.. LIKE TEXAS.TO READ UP ON THAT… LOOK FOR THE STORY
