Skip to comments.Wild pigs rule the night in Pakistan capital

Every winter, the capital of Pakistan's Islamic republic is overrun by what is many Muslims' worst nightmare: sounds of screeching wild pigs.
Motivated by hunger, the reviled animals descend each night from neighboring hills to feed on the garbage bins of Islamabad's most exclusive addresses from high-end hotels to the capital's embassies and even the president's residence. On their way to feeding grounds pigs cause traffic accidents and send locals hurrying for cover. Some Islamabad residents have reportedly been injured or even killed by belligerent hogs.
Now Islamabad officials have all but given up trying to contain the intruders.

Rednecks, night scopes, and high-powered air rifles. That’s your solution.
Sort of a funny irony that an Islamic country is overrun with hogs.
Must be a muslim thing; there are feral pigs all over Northern “gaza” — descendants of Roman pigs.
If this was happening in some utopia similar to America, they’d be eligible to vote and get free-food debit cards.
Pigs breed like crazy, too, so the problem will only get worse. (Snicker)
I beg to differ good sir!
I would use Cajuns. Give them an unlimited supply of cartridges (30-06 of course), and a Remington 700 with a good scope on top. However, the most important thing to tell them is there is no bag limit and they taste like craw fish and there is a bounty on their heads of 1 bottle of good whiskey per 10 hogs
Problem solved in one week. It would take the Red Necks a week and a half
now are these locals or members of government?
Proof that God does have a sense of humor.
These morons would be surprisingly easy to defeat if we used our heads.
Just hang some dried pork products in every home and they will abandon it.
I know we already use bullets greased with a special lubricant made of pig fat (not really, I just made it up - but it’s a great rumor to start, don’tcha think?)
Send some to haj.
Are those things edible?
It would be a shame to waste all that meat. You have a couple of years worth of breakfast sausage, at least.
AND some nice Muzzie repellant too!
The nights are probably more pleasant and safer in Pakistan than the daylight hours are.
Any reason for using an air rifle? Would like to know more about them.
These pigs are in the big city, Islamabad. Center fire rifles make a big noise, especially at night when the pigs are on the move.
They’ve got high end air rifles these days that can actually kill elephants.
Hmmm, interesting. Thanks for the info.
LOL ! Serves them right. We need to get some hogs for Iran, Iraq and Palestinian territories !
