Meanwhile in North America (ie US) it's the people that get shot...
True, but these little critters too. Try Googling "Pig bomb". In an American solution to the problem, the are trying shooting them from helicopters. There was a 2 page spread in "Libération" last week about the situation in France. There are far too many. They dig up lawns (looking for worms), chew up whole fields of vegetables, etc. And there are not enough hunters to keep their population down. Also the hunters refuse to shoot the females, in case next year's population is endangered...
