Based on WDFWs track record the best thing they could do is declare wild pigs a salmon or a game animal and start managing them as such.  The pigs would disappear in no time!

I'm just hoping if there are pigs on the loose, then they are either Berkshires or Mangalistas.

Wouldn't that be fabulous! I know a guy in So. OR who raises them. Nothing like it.

Lots of berks and other quality meat breeds around.  Remember, more difference pig to pig than breed to breed.  Just because it is a berk does not mean instant perfection.  And once they get loose they become something else in a few short generations.  Invasive destructive critters.

They become something else in a few short months. Domestic stocks' noses elongate and tusks start to grow. It's amazing what happens to them when released into the wild.

I'm just wondering when the official HuntWa wild pig roundup is going to be. 2019 is slipping away but isn't too late to launch a the first of what could be an annual event.

I didn't know that the GP went clear over to the 388?

If you haven't yet, I would definitely contact the WDFW and/or USDA and let them know...
