The Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources has removed about 317 wild pigs since December 2010. Of those, about 80 were trapped and 237 were killed in two aerial gunning operations conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Dobey said.

“They can cause terrible, terrible damage to row crops, food plots for wildlife, soybeans, corn,” Soard said.“They eat just about anything. They can destroy an area overnight. They root and turn over the soil, trample it and compact it so nothing will grow.”

State law allows wild hogs to be hunted or trapped year-round with a proper license, Soard said.

In 2008, the USDA estimated that there were 4 million wild hogs in 37 states. They caused an estimated $800 million in property damage, roughly $200 per hog,.

I have not heard of any wild hogs in Lee County. There are a few coyotes out and about, however.

Over in the Ross's Creek country I have heard of some wild pigs. I came across some sign, root and a wallow near Ida Mae last fall. That could have been local pigs that had got out.
