Day 16: Burning Planet

My heart goes out to Australia, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines.

Day 138: Feral Hogs

I have no idea what prompted me to get on Twitter this morning. I usually stay off of social media, especially first thing in the morning. But I did and I found an interesting trend that reminded me of my time in Huntsville where feral hogs are a genuine problem.

They’re an invasive species that consume pretty much everything, destroying crops, driving away game, and even on occasion causing problems with livestock. They are smart, aggressive, and there’s nothing left to hunt them to control the population. They don’t even have the decency to taste very good!

All of which got me thinking of this wonderful quote…

“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again: bu already it was impossible to say which was which.”

–George Orwell, “Animal Farm.”
