ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS PROTEST PLAN TO ERADICATE WILD PIGS LOCALLY

 

April 1, 2012 (San Diego’s East County) – Activists have voiced outrage over the U.S. Forest Service’s announced  plans to use helicopters to shoot  the growing feral pig population running wild across rural East County. Now, a grassroots organization known as Save Our Wild Pigs Action Committee (SOWPAC) has announced plans to rescue the imperiled swine.

“This is a ham-handed and heartless scheme to eradicate these animals,” said Wanda Hogg, SOWPAC spokesperson, who asked her her face not be shown.  “SOWPAC’s mission is to rescue these wild pigs instead.”
