Before reading the following comment, please search & read Hogs in river in China. It is my opinion that Aerial hog hunting should be classified a violation of the Clean Water Act, because of the rotting carcasses left to contaminate the states water supply. Yes, the water which we bathe in, cook with and drink,etc. Dept.of Health & Human Resources should have in-volvement in such a proposal,not to mention other numerous governmental & environmental organizations. This act would also be a poor means of conservation to other wildlife. Just to mention,the wild turkey would injest maggot worms from the decomposing hogs & it's intracles. Bacteria would cause the turkey to contract intestinal disorders & inflamation & cause an agonizing death. Runoff, would contaminate foliage where deer graze, instesd of brouse. The negatives far outweigh the positives of such a practice. I could go on and on, but there are much better means of controlling the feral hogs without putting human lives at risk.
