The estimated 5 million descendants of escaped domestic pigs and imported Eurasian boars are “wildly prolific,” the USDA says, and cause about $800 million in damage a year to farms nationwide. Testing the feasibility of poisoning feral swine with sodium nitrate is part of the department’s $20 million program to control the rampant population.
