Skip to comments.Bracken: Trapping Feral Pigs and Other Parables of Modern Life
Posted on 10/24/2012 6:56:31 PM PDT by dynachrome
So how do the pros trap entire feral pig herds, eliminating them all, from granddads to piglets, in one go?
They feed them, most generously. They kill them with kindness. -----------------------------------------------
The moral of the story: The guy who is starving you may sincerely be trying to feed you, but his best efforts might not be enough. In the end, if you are penned in, you can be killed by simple starvation and neglect, requiring no directly malign intention by your captors. Starvation just happens naturally when insufficient food is coming into the enclosure.

May be of interest to your list. FR’s Travis Mcgee’s latest article
This Matt Bracken guy, he is so cool and he can write and he’s smart (and clean and articulate)
//butt kissing off
By the way I google-de-doodled and found that a group of turkeys is not a herd, it’s a “rafter” or occasionally a “gang”. Just thought the little factoid might be interesting.
Definitely not as cool as the imagery that a Murder of Crows brings forth.
Great article, not nearly simple enough for the sheeple to understand. Then again, the non-sheeple will benefit from knowing what they don’t when survival is at stake.
That has got to be, without a doubt, the coolest job on planet Earth!
Indeed. And that’s a whole lotta sausage.
A very thought provoking article from Matt Bracken. Thanks, Matt. I second his “hat tip” to the book “The Black Swan”. Not an easy read, but the ideas contained therein will stay with you and make you look at the world a little differently. Don’t be a turkey.....
I thought a group of turkeys was a flock.
I am trusting Goooobble on this one. lol
Unfortunately, we have a congress of baboons.
I’m going to repost the whole essay on a new FR thread.
cool. That will be one uber-awesome post
cool. “wordpress” gets kicked to blog area, otherwise I would have liked to put it in “editorial” news
