Wild Hogs In Texas
An East Texas man was having an ongoing turf war for five years with a 416-pound feral pig he called “the bush beast” that was wreaking havoc on his land and killing fawns on his property. That hog soon learned why you should never mess with a Texan and his hunting property.
Fox News reports that Joe Clowers, of Union Grove, Texas, tries to keep his property “like a sanctuary or nursery for the deer to raise fawns,” but the massive hog was wreaking havoc by feasting on the young deer.
Texas hosts one of America’s biggest feral hog populations, with an estimated 4 million hogs statewide – and they keep expanding further and further into developed neighborhoods.
Clowers said he took the animal using an AR-15, and plans to keep the trophy of the beast mounted on his wall at home.
“He was the big daddy,” Clowers stated. “I called him the bush beast.”
The Gregg County Game Warden shared some pictures on their Facebook page to show just how big this pig was.
