“The residents of the San Francisco Bay Area go to great lengths to accommodate the wealth of wildlife around them. With the exception of the occasional aggressive coyote, the animals that roam the hills and gullies of the Bay Area — turkeys, mountain lions, deer, bobcats, foxes and the rest of a veritable Noah’s Ark — find themselves on somewhat laissez-faire terms with the humans around them. Not so for the rampaging feral pigs. They are tearing up lawns, ripping through golf course fairways, threatening the drinking water and disturbing the harvests at Napa vineyards. Many Californians want them dead.” (When they go on one of their barking binges, many Californians feel the same about my beagles…) Thomas Fuller in the NYT (Gift Article): The Rampaging Pigs of the San Francisco Bay Area.
