Oklahoma Passes Bill for Aerial Gunning of Wild Hogs

The State House of Representatives of Oklahoma have joined with Texas and Louisiana and have passed a law that allows shooters to pay for a helicopter flight so that they can shoot feral hogs. Rep. Jeff Coody said they were calling it the flying pig bill.

Before the bill was passed, only trained and licensed contractors who work with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry were able to aerially gun down the hogs. They have reportedly killed 11,206 hogs in only 2016. They hope to “eradicate” the species and not preserve them, as they are a nuisance, reports Tulsa World.
