    It helps your chances for survival if you don't mind eating garbage and sleeping in trees.

    He should do a show where he takes a monkey with him. They could drink their own or each other's pee and throw feces out of the trees too.

    BG would jump off a cliff into a river and the monkey would be like "Whaaaaaa?"

    Bhohahahaha..Kinda where my thoughts are as well....

    Few years back...2002 ....guy brought 32 feral hogs from Texas for his "game farm....."was gonna charge people to hunt them.
    Was about 5 mile down river from "The Place"

    Had a small Elk farm, but was using state refuge land as well.

    DNR says .."No, you have to catch them and take them back"
    Guy said "Sure, OK...But they escaped...Whoops

    Was arrested, fined like 100K... plus damages for the local farmers
    You don't mess with the DNR.....
    Not sure if he ever went to jail....but hightailed it back to Texas...
    Was cleared in 2008....so 6 years of court

    That was about 15 years ago....haven't heard much about them lately.....

    He probably would have gotten the same reaction here. There's a lot that can be overlooked in a man's character before he goes turning loose hogs, wild, feral, or otherwise.

    There are two things you can't get away with doing dirty. The DNR and women. Somtimes women.

    If it is not indegenous, and causing huge issues... then The animal lovers should see the bigger picture of the effect on the environment it has just being there.

    No doubt all of us here are animal lovers but big huge difference between us and the Peta types that would raise hell over a loose tiger in downtown eating everyone being killed. The monkeys and pythons down there need to be irradicated.

    No, the big difference is that PETA does more harm than good. A bunch of the idiots once turned a restaurant's stock of lobsters free....into the nearest freshwater river.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    I'll bet that went over well. Little lobster voices screaming "Help me!" from their fresh watery graves. Sort of sounded like Clickety click click but you know what I mean.

    I remember that. I picture a buncha skinny men with beards and manbuns and hairy pit women with no bras yelling "FREE THE LOBSTERS!"

    Good thing I wasn't there. I'd have heard FREE LOBSTERS and I'd have been line for the meal. Probably got arrested just trying to eat.

    They escaped one or two at a time into the swamp from a Chimpanzee Research Facility in the 1950's. Basically a breeding facility that would raise them for research. Then when they were loading them for transport a craft one or two would get out.

    You can google and see videos and articles about them. They really haven't posed a problem so far.

    even these types of monkies, in their natural environment are pests, as people want to feed them.. saw this a lot in Richards bay when I stayed there, people visiting on holiday from inland would find them cute stop cars feed them... the monkies would be come used to humans, get into peoples houses and cause a rukus..

    Hmm can't catch them and send them back to India & China? Would someone have a problem with that? You bet.

    Peta has done far more than that. The main office in Manhattan was infested with rats. It was a hell of a clean up. Peta is a world wide organization that has committed murder and mayhem throughout the world when it comes to our food, clothing and saftey

    We had a similar situation up here on lake Superior/ Point Abby Peninsula north of L'Anse, with hogs getting out of a "hunting preserve". The owner had a nine mile long, 10 ft high stock fence erected around the property and turned loose wild boar inside the fence. Along came a high windy day (not uncommon on the south shore of Superior) and a number of trees fell across the fence and the hogs escaped! Local residents were not happy, to say the least (nor was the DNR).
    The County Law Boys issued a Three S" (shoot, shovel &shut up) To make a long story short, A land conservation organization that I am a board member with, now owns the property. Now we are being pressed by the DNR to remove that 9 mile fence. The estimated removal cost is in excess of one hundred grand.
    The fence blocks the traditional winter deer migration route, which is why the DNR wants the fence removed.

    They (the government) should offer to remove it - after all they have plenty of money to build walls. No wait - they wanted Mexico to pay for that one. My bad.
