Todd Spivak covers the sizable feral hog population of Texas and the culture that has emerged around it, including the hog dog rodeo. Animal lovers will be horrified, especially if they’ve never seen a feral hog. Not to defend the rodeo practice, but if you’ve spent any time at all with these animals, particularly if some of them live on your land, it’s awful hard not to hate ‘em and putting one down wouldn’t seem any more inhumane that stepping on a cockroach you found in your house.
