Wild pigs causing 'ecological disaster' as they spread rapidly across Canada, survey says

For the first time, researchers have mapped the range of wild pigs across Canada and found the numbers of invasive swine are rising rapidly.

Wild pigs are now Canada's most prolific invasive mammal, according to what the University of Saskatchewan calls the first-ever published survey of their distribution in Canada and they're causing an "ecological disaster."

"They'll root up the vegetation like a rototiller," said researcher Ruth Aschim. "They're rolling around in the water, defecating in it."
