Summary
"Huge holes cover a cornfield. The corn plants in the field have been dug up and trampled, and much of the corn is half eaten. What caused this terrible damage? The answer is big, hairy, and running wild. Throughout the South and in much of the United States, feral pigs, many of which were once farm animals, are destroying crops, ruining property, and polluting streams and rivers with their waste. In Feral Pigs: Chomp, Chomp!, students will learn all about these animal invaders. The fascinating account describes how feral pigs spread all over the country, how they dig up and destroy more than a billion dollars worth of property each year, and what's being done to control their numbers. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the dramatic details. Written in narrative format, this series is sure to keep young readers engaged"--Provided by the publisher
