So last night, courtesy of some late night channel surfing, we stumbled upon Discovery Channel (always a favorite!) and saw a show titled “Hogs Gone Wild”. This show highlighted the feral hog problems and solutions in the states of Florida, Hawaii and Texas.
LolaBelle’s Treats is located in on the Texas coast so we are very aware of the feral hog problem. Frankly, they are SCARY! The show highlighted companies that specialize in feral hog removal and that is where we were introduced to the AMAZING Riddick of L3 Outdoors!
Riddick is an enormous lovable Great Dane who is a registered Boarhound. I had no idea Great Danes were used for this kind of work so I stayed up long past my bedtime because I wasn’t going to miss seeing this huge dog take down a huge boar! And it did not disappoint!
This show isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s dangerous, bloody work. Until you have seen a wild boar in person it’s hard to describe how terrifying they really are. The show and L3 outdoors website provides tons of information on feral hogs, the techniques they use, profiles on the dogs and what they do with the meat (I’ll give you a hint! It’s for a GOOD cause!)
Check your local listings and catch “Hogs Gone Wild” and all the amazing dogs working to keep us safe!
