Farmer and rancher Dan Ripley got a surprise recently.
“We saw these pigs, we saw these pigs actually with the cattle!”
He said he hated to see it.
“But the cattle were fine. They were just lying out there and the pigs were just lying right out there among ‘em.”
Wild pigs are a problem in Pawnee, Oklahoma. They can carry over 30 diseases, and one year they destroyed 240 acres of Ripley’s corn crop.
“They went right down the row, picking out that - back then it was about $100 a bag corn seed - and eating it.”
