Texas Man Kills 416-Pound Feral Hog Eating Fawns on His Land With an AR-15
OutdoorHub Reporters 10.23.17
A man in Texas was having a little bit of a turf war with a 416-pound feral pig he called “the bush beast” that kept killing fawns on his property. That hog learned real quick why you never mess with a Texan and his hunting property.
Fox News reports that Joe Clowers,of Union Grove, Texas, tries to keep his property “like a sanctuary or nursery for the deer to raise fawns,” but the massive hog was wreaking havoc by feasting on the young deer.
Texas hosts one of America’s biggest feral hog populations, with an estimated 4 million hogs statewide – and they keep expanding further and further into developed neighborhoods.
Clowers said he took the animal using an AR-15, and plans to keep a trophy of the beast mounted on his wall at home.
“He was the big daddy,” Clowers stated. “I called him the bush beast.”
