Feral Democrats

This won't come as a surprise to anyone in my neck of the woods. We've been seeing more and more feral hogs around here, along with the associated damage. They've plowed up large swatches of our property in their search for grubs and reptiles. They also eat any and all birds and small mammals they come across. They have severely impacted ground-nesting birds such as quail, and gobble down baby deer, goats, and sheep whenever they get the chance.

They remind me of democrats. They consume resources far out of proportion to their numbers. They contribute nothing back to the community. They are destructive pests, there is no effective way to get rid of them, and they breed faster than you can shoot them.

In short, they are one gigantic pain in the ass.

Deer hunters face unwanted competition as feral hog explosion thins herds
Deer hunters are facing competition from a source that is mean, relentless and out of control.

The explosion of feral hogs across the U.S. is threatening the deer population -- spreading disease, dominating the food chain and even, on occasion, killing and eating fawns...
Feral hog carries off a fawn.
"They’re very adaptable and also highly destructive..."
Yep, sure sounds like democrats.
... feral pigs, which can weigh up to 500 pounds, (are) "opportunistic" eaters -- omnivores that feast on anything crossing their path, including deer fawn, other piglets and dead animals ... (they also) carry many diseases, such as leptospirosis, which can infect or kill other animals, like deer, as well as humans.
Again, sounds like the left.
Wild hogs can reproduce by the time they are 6 months old. Feral sows can have two litters per year averaging six piglets per litter, according to wildlife experts. Statisticians have determined that 75 percent of the population must be harvested to maintain a static population... Texas has the highest rate of feral hogs to date, according to environmentalists.
To its credit, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department recognizes feral hogs for the threat they are.
While there are no bag limits or seasons on hunting wild pig in Texas, there are some minor regulations that are common sense anyways. It is illegal to:

    Hunt a feral hog without a valid hunting license.
    Hunt a feral hog on a public road or right-of-way.
    Hunt a feral hog without the landowner’s permission.
    Possess a feral hog or the carcass of a feral pig without the owner’s consent
Other than that, it is open season on those depredating creatures.

Now if we could just get the same rules passed for liberals...
