In his article, he writes that Canadian hogs pose a threat to all of North America. Extremely intelligent and extremely elusive, these animals are already digging tunnels under the snow to reach the northern United States.
According to Gabbat, this species was bred by Canadian farmers in the 1980s by crossing wild boar and common pigs. So they wanted to get a breed that gives more meat. However, several individuals managed to “escape”. At the same time, no one sounded the alarm: experts were sure that the pigs would not be able to survive the harsh Canadian winter. But in fact, it turned out that “being big is a great advantage in surviving the cold.”
According to expert Ryan Brook, these three-hundred-kilogram animals escape the cold by digging caves up to two meters deep in the snow. And “razor-sharp fangs” allow them to get food.
The invasion of superpigs can cause enormous damage to the environment, said expert Michael Marlow. According to him, they eat crops, destroy trees, pollute water. In addition, they represent a “risk to human health and safety.”
