Feral pigs in New Mexico

Amarillo, TX - State and federal officials say feral pigs are ravaging eastern New Mexico's range and farmland.

An astonishing reproductive rate has seen hogs spread to 17 of New Mexico's 33 counties in just seven years. One Quay county farmer and Rancher says he has killed more than 300 feral swine on his land.

The pigs could have a devastating effect on New Mexico's economy. The U.S. agricultural department is tracking the invasion of feral pigs into New Mexico.
