Mich. State Agents Raid Pig Farms to Kill So-called “Invasive Species”

Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) has reportedly violated the Fourth Amendment by conducting two armed raids on pig farms in the state’s Kalkaska and Cheboygan Counties. The incursions, which included six vehicles and 10 armed men, were apparently for the purpose of shooting all the farmers’ pigs under the new “Invasive Species Order” (ISO) that has much of declared traditional livestock to be an invasive species.

In 2010, the Michigan DNR outlawed feral swine — pigs classified as non-native, invasive, and said to be carriers of disease and overall harmful to the environment. Though groups fought adamantly to overturn the ban, it went into effect April 1.

The new ISO now defines all open-range pigs raised on small family farms as illegal “invasive species,” and all farmers who raise them as felons. The MDNR declared that it would “destroy” all such pigs beginning in April, even indicating they would raid local farms with government-issued rifles.

Michigan officials issued a document that described nine specific traits for what they call “feral pigs,” which they indicated should be destroyed by April 1. One of those traits includes having the wrong color on the tip of the hair, or being born with striped hair. Other traits pertain to skeletal appearance and ear structure.

    How come “wild” pigs are bad but wolves are good?

      Well you see cousin it has got to do with double standards! They seem to not see as we do. We are nothing but stewards, bad ones mainly. I watched a docu last week on the spread of wolves back into the Seattle area. Now I like them, they are Gods creatures and have a place. They cull the weak and cause herds to move, properly managed there is no problem. The cattle men see them as evil, well I differ.

      As for the hogs, well they are good for woodland, rooting allows the canopy to develop and they are good to eat. The bunny huggers did us a favour as they released wild boar, now we have them everywhere. We need wolves again here, the deer are rampant and having to be culled. When we have our way and don’t steward, well it goes haywire.
