Wild pigs rule the night in Pakistan capital
The Seattle Times ^ | December 25, 2011 | Nicolas Brulliard

Posted on 12/27/2011 10:03:48 AM PST by george76

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.

Very distructive.

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

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?)

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.
Thanks.

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.

Remington? Air rifles?? LOL. You guys sound like amateurs. lol. That part of the world has the world's highest per capita AK-47s and RPGs. They make Rednecks and Cajuns look like Gandhi.

Sure, maybe they can kill me, but I WILL send them home to Hell in the bargain.

FYI, regarding a law suit filed in different States by LibertyLegalFoundation:

Our motion is as simple as a motion can be. It asserts one uncontested fact and one legal definition, which is quoted directly from the Supreme Court. Our only argument for this motion is this: Obama’s father was never a U.S. citizen and the Supreme Court has defined “natural-born citizen” to be a person with two U.S. citizen-parents. This leaves the Democratic party only two options: Argue that Obama’s father was a U.S. citizen, or argue that the Supreme Court definition of natural-born citizen isn’t what it clearly is. They will NOT argue the former. They will argue the latter. This means that we will be exactly where we want to be: arguing what the definition of natural-born citizen is under the U.S. Constitution. This is the argument we want to have.

Some may ask why we aren’t addressing the birth certificate or the social security number or the various other inconsistencies in Obama’s history and documentation. The reason is that confusion is the primary tool of legal defendants. If the defense can bring up a myriad of facts and legal jargon to confuse the issue, they win. If we raise every issue that is out there, the defendants will focus on our weakest argument and move the debate to their advantage. We want to control the argument and focus the Court to the major and most clear issue – the fact that Obama is not a “natural born citizen” by his own admission.

A 30-06 is not an air rifle and depending on the bullet weight will have about 2700 foot pounds of energy. It will give you a serious case of hurt.

A Remington 700 is the best rifle you can buy at a reasonable price.

I will take your army of Cajuns and raise you one Afghan. Its not the gun but the man behind it that makes the difference. The kids in that country learn to pick up a gun before they learn to tie their shoes. War is their occupation and beating one superpower after another... after another.. after another is the way of life in that part of the world.

And don’t ever bring a bolt action Remington to a full automatic AK-47!
