Texas Fish & Game editor-at-large Ted Nugent recently struck a blow for conservation and invasive species control by machine-gunning 455 feral hogs from a helicopter shooting platform–all in a single day.
In an interview on SiriusXM radio, Ted told host Brett Winterble:
“I took my machine gun in the helicopter — in the Texas hill country – me and my buddy ‘Pigman’ … his name is ‘Pigman’ – I’m the swine czar. I killed 455 hogs with my machine gun. I did it for Bill Maher and all those other animal rights freaks out there.”
Back in January, Ted again taunted the animal people by Tweeting, “We kill pigs with machinegunsfrom helicopters to save the environment what r u doin”
But in neither case did anything go to waste; Ted and company distributed the meat to homeless shelters and other charities.
“We saved the environment from the destruction of these out-of-control pigs and I’m not talking about Washington D.C. or San Francisco–I’m actually talking about actual pigs,” he said. “I had to adjust my halo as I was machine-gunning hogs.”
