Upset with Deer Rules, Man Releases Pigs

A Texas man is being tried in Wisconsin for allegedly releasing feral hogs
in Wisconsin as a way of protesting the state’s strict nonresident deer
hunting regulations.

Robert Johnson, 55, of San Marcos, Texas, allegedly drove 31 wild hogs from
Texas and released them in Clark County, Wis., in 2002. Wisconsin, which had no feral
hogs until then, now has resident populations in more than 30
counties.

A judge is hearing the case. Johnson faces possible fines up to $31,000.
