A church in Prosper, TX is having a problem with hogs on its property tearing up their field. They are getting closer to the kid's sports field and they need to be gone ASAP!! We can't shoot them because we are in city limits and the new police department is next door. smile Gonna have to trap and remove.

Anyone able to help the church out with this? Please contact me ASAP. 972-820-5133

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

My husband and son volunteered to remove them with their night vision equipment and cross bows (since it's near the police department) but the pigs are required to be trapped. elmer

Guns = Unlimited volunteers. Trapping = Probably be prepared to write a check, especially if they cannot be dispatched on site and are required to be loaded / transported.

Get someone in there to run them with dogs.

Do it enough times and they will not come back (the hogs).

Trapping would be best (since it removes the hogs) but you're not likely to get a 'volunteer', its a LOT of work.

Sounds like someone in the church needs to step up.

Or just sit around & wait for a miracle.

Maybe nobody from the congregation has a clue about trapping hogs?

I bet if they buy a trap, they could get a 5 min lesson on how to work it.

Or, if God wanted the hogs in a trap, he would miracle them into it.

And so ends today's lesson on Texas friendliness and asking for help from others.

I don't see an issue with 'friendliness' here really. It's just there are other considerations beyond just getting the pigs 'trapped', which in itself is a lot of work.

What are you going to do with them once you have them? They have to be transported elsewhere for one purpose or another. The males can be sold to a game ranch but the females can not 'legally' be released onto another property. So the only options left are to kill them at another location OR take them to a commercial buyer.

I'm not saying some kind soul won't step up and help....but I AM saying there is more to it than most folks know and few persons equipped to do the job.

My bad. I misunderstood the Christian sarcasm as being less than friendly.

Yes, it would involve some work. Even if they were inviting people to come and shoot them, it would involve some work.
