I saw this posted on another site.  Apparently the pigs are trying to take over at LBL.

From the article:

"Experts warned against the hunting of wild hogs. Not only is it illegal, it's part of how the population explosion started.

“Hunting wild hogs is counterproductive to agency eradication efforts,” Brunjes said. “Hogs that are hunted disperse into new areas and become very difficult to find and euthanize." 

And as far as hunting goes, hunters have a definite interest in getting rid of the hogs, which drive down populations of deer and turkeys."
When they come for mine they better bring theirs

I saw this guy earlier in the year at hog camp near Livingston, Tennessee. USDA hog eradication aircraft shooting hogs in those hills:

As for shooting the hogs at LBL, this is from the LBL website:
