I am afraid that "seeding" of National Parks etc. close to major urban areas 
with feral animals, especially pigs, is a fact of life. It takes a fair bit of 
money to keep driving out  to Upper Llareggub to shoot the little beasties. 
Much more cost effective to grab a trailer load of of youngsters and drop them 
off in the local State Forest or National Park and let them breed.
