Wild Boars Gone Wild Scare The Heck Out Of Residents Of Resort Town

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Italian resort town overrun with wild boars has granted residents the right to shoot them on sight, local officials said."

Pigs are cute animals, almost every petting zoo has a couple of piglets because children love to pet them. But wild boars are ferocious animals, who destroy gardens and lawns. I wouldn`t mind playing with a piglet, but if I saw a wild boar I would run like the devil and scream like a schoolgirl.

The last thing a resort needs is a bunch of boars running wild, I can understand why the Italian resort town is up in arms. But I don`t think it`s a good idea to let residents shoot them on sight. With so many bullets flying, it`s not just wild boars who will be hit.

The town should hire professional hunters to cull the boars, and the meat should be given to the poor in the community.

I love pigs, but writing this article has made me hungry for some bacon and eggs.
