Once Again, Sheriff Rhodes Leads the Way

You Sheriff Rhodes fans (both of you) will recall that the good sheriff's been tangling with feral hogs ever since the very first book in the series (Too Late to Die), way back in 1986. And the hoggies play a major role in the more recent A Mammoth Murder.

KLTV 7 News Tyler, Longview, Jacksonville |$1 Million To Control Feral Hogs In Texas: "Texas landowners are getting more help to control the state's feral hog population.

The Texas Department of Agriculture today announced it's awarded the Texas AgriLife Extension Service one million dollars for the project.

Experts say the wild hogs, which can balloon up to 400 pounds, can mangle fields and pastures, wreck ecosystems by wallowing in streambeds -- plus feral hogs kill smaller animals."
