Here's Why the Internet Is Freaking out About Feral Hogs

By

If you logged on today and noticed the entire internet is losing it over 30-50 feral hogs, you might have been confused. That's understandable! On a normal day, you probably don't think twice about feral hogs, let alone 30-50 of them. But there's a legit reason why everyone is freaking out over feral hogs, and it all started with a response to the tragic shooting that happened over the weekend (over a span of two days, more than 31 people were killed, and 53 injured in two separate mass shootings). 

So...what's with the feral hogs and where did they come from?

On Aug. 4, Twitter user Jason Isbell wrote, "If you're on here arguing the definition of an 'assault weapon' today you are part of the problem. You know what an assault weapon is, and you know you don't need one." The tweet alone has over 41.8k hearts at the time of reporting.
