The demise of the bush pig?

johnboy 19 January 2012 6

Territory and Municipal Services are letting you know they’re winning the war on feral pigs in Namadgi National Park:

“The latest data reveals that 9.6% of test plots set up in Namadgi showed some evidence of feral pig activity, down from 17.65% in 2008. These results demonstrate a significant and sustained reduction in both pig numbers and impact,” Mr McNamara said.

It’s not so much a demise as the fact that being fat and littered with tramp stamps is now the norm rather than an aberration.

The weird uniform they wear is puzzling, composed as it is of various types of t-shirts, made into skirts and dresses. Amazingly un-flattering though. As-are the thongs. I have heard such females refer to their “dress thongs” so apparently there is such a thing. I wonder if they clean them?

They haven’t “demised”, they’ve just moved to Gungahlin.

I read the title and thought the author obviously doesn’t frequent the Hypodome on the weekends…

We’d probably get rid of more ferel pigs if we tapped into the post-SummerNats market.

Putting on best radio contest announcers voice from the 1980’s – ‘Hey rev-heads, burn some rubber then shoot some pigs. Just another summer of fun in your national capital’.

I thought this was about another pub closing down. Must read Bacon Busters with more care in future.

This is very very good news.

These pests decimate the undergrowth and significantly impact habitats of native species.

Keep it up.

I wonder if they’re getting similar positive results on wild dogs… http://the-riotact.com/a-dingo-ate-my-telescope/35164
