Where’s the Other Little Piggy? Timber Greens in New Port Richey FL, I thought I lived on a golf course but these guys showed up the other day (I’m thinking they left the third little piggy home to guard the place from the blowers). These are wild hogs that live in the woods behind the golf course. I hear them in my garden sometimes in the middle of the night; they can really tear up the garden and the golf course when they have a hoedown out there.

Supposedly, Wild Hogs were brought to Florida by Hernando de Soto (I think he probably gets blamed for lots of things. Or maybe Ponce de Leon, it's hard to tell now-the pigs aren’t talking.) In the next 4 centuries, everyone brought pigs with them. Mostly they were raised in a half-wild condition, only being called in when needed for chops; until laws were changed. A lot of them were left wild and became the feral population we know now.
They were deliberately released into the wild by private individuals and the Fish and Game Commission to improve hunting opportunities for many years. Florida no longer does that.
