The most recent estimates put the Lone Star State as home to more than 2 million wild pigs. Brook, a University of Saskatchewan researcher, believes that the Canadian prairie province easily has the potential to become just as infected if action isn't taken soon. He is compiling data for Saskatchewan's first scientific survey of feral pigs. "I think the window is closing very rapidly," Brook told the Canadian Press. "If we don't take some very serious action over the next two years, then we're very quickly going to be moving into a position where we're simply trying to manage and live with wild boar, rather than eradicate them."
