few years ago i killed few hogs on santa cruz island,but there was talk that state of comifornia was going to hire a new Zealand based company to kill them all, and we the taxpayers paid something like 6 million dollars to get it done. Has anyone actually seen this slaughter happen or was it all bs.to scare off hunters, and there still piggies on the island.

not sure as I've never been there, but I did read several articles that talked about it after it happened. One article mentioned that it was done via helicopter.

What I heard is the enviros want to restore all the channel islands and catalina back to their natural habitat. So they been screamen at the state to get rid of the elk, pigs, etc. I wonder if they might use that helicopter and get rid of the people that screwed up the islands too.
