Texas trapper says he’s on track to trap 6,500+ hogs after ‘busy year’
SAN ANTONIO – “It’s a busy year this year,” said one professional trapper who told KSAT the company he works for is on track to trap over 6,500 hogs for 2020. Wyatt Walton, a trapper with Lone Star Trapping, said the team is actively working 365 days a year and that their pens hardly ever sit dormant. Lone Star Trapping, whose service area covers the entire state of Texas, provides hog removal services and has been trapping in the San Antonio area since 2016. He sent KSAT video of a group of hogs recently captured by Lone Star Trapping in San Antonio for a local HOA. “Feral hogs can be found in 99% of Texas counties and cause an estimated $52 million in damages to Texas agricultural enterprises each year,” according to the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension.
