Mexico To Kill 50,000 Wild Boars ‘Immigrating’ From the U.S.

 Mexican officials claim that some 50,000 wild boars sneak over the dividing line from the United States during the day to trample over south-of-the border farm lands and then return to the U.S. at night.  And they plan to ‘trap and kill’ them all!

 They posit that these treacherous animals, lately from Presidio County, Texas, now destroy some 3,700 acres in the town of Ojinaga near the Texas border.  “We must get rid of these European wild boars because they sleep overnight on U.S. soil during the day and cross over to the Mexican side to feed,”  says Ignacio Legarreta, a Mexican state official, without explaining how they estimate 50,000.

 Their plan for killing these intruding pigs is to ‘trap’ them into cages, and then kill them, one by one, until the region has 50,000 less pigs.  Those who have been trying to ‘trap and kill’ these aggressively huge animals across Florida, Texas and all the U.S., double-over in amusement at such an “impossible” scheme.

 On uppitywoman08, ProundMilitaryMom turned the tables on Mexico.  She says that these hefty pigs are not ‘wild.’  “They are undocumented.  Has the American economy gotten so bad even our pigs are leaving?”

 “I am appalled at this gross injustice to immigrants! These hogs are not criminals, and are only trying to better themselves. How dare the unfeeling Mexican government propose such draconian schemes to enforce their borders,”
this Mom muses.  Again, does anyone know how the number 50,000 was attained?

 Further turning the table on the same Mexican officials who take the U.S. to task for the way that this country’s justice system treats illegal immigrants from Mexico, she laughs:  “Perhaps the hogs could get green cards to go over to Mexico to feed, then return to the US. They should also expect free education, health care, and food stamps if they decide to stay in Mexico . . legally or not.”

 All joking aside, as Earth-End has been raising alarm for years, these pigs are threats to public health and safety.  PBS.org explains, “Wild boars are vectors of several serious diseases, including pseudorabies, . . . swine brucellosis, which can be fatal in people; and trichinosis, a food-borne disease caused by a parasitic worm that lodges in the animal’s muscle tissue.”  These pigs are dangerous stuff!

 Whether in the U.S. or Mexico, PBS states, “The disease may be passed to humans who consume infected, undercooked meat and can be fatal if not treated. As the feral hog population continues to breed with escaped domestic stock, their genetic diversity continues to widen.”  Even if mixed breed, pig diseases transfer.

 Of course, wholesale Christian Bibles discourages believers from eating any pig or swine, whether wild or not:  “And the swine . . . is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh . . . (Deuteronomy 14: 8).”  And The LORD Jesus symbolically denigrated such ‘food‘ by sending 3,000 pigs to drown in the sea (Matthew 8: 32).  So whatever they eat or drink, Christians must continue to pray!
