I previously warned the nation of the invasion of airborne Canadian wolves. Now, it appears that our Northern neighbor is switching back to the land attack with news of an invasion of feral pigs. They can be distinguished from our own feral pigs apparently because they are more polite and put mayo on everything.
According to the Daily Inter Lake, U.S. agriculture department’s Wildlife Services division is warning people in Montana of eight porcine Canadians crossing the border.
Notably, no one in the Democratic debate last night was prepared to address this invasion or its implications for the Republic.
In all seriousness, I am surprised that feral pigs crossings is such a concern given the large number of feral pigs in the country. These animals actually can do great deal to natural areas as I discovered spending time with rangers in Micronesia. In the United States, Eurasian or Russian wild boar was introduced into parts of the United States in the 1900s for the purpose of sport hunting. The U.S. government reports that feral swine are a combination of escaped domestic pigs and Eurasian wild boars. They are found in 35 states and are rapidly expanding their territory. There are currently over 6 million such animals.
These however are Canadian swine and we do not want their Parliament-loving, hockey-playing, Lululemon-wearing hogs on our land.
