What do you think of using Tannerite to kill feral hogs?
Killing wild or so-called “feral” pigs, which have spread across the U.S. causing some environmental and safety concerns, is nothing new, but blowing them up takes it to the next level.
A video posted onto YouTube earlier this month titled “Tannerite Hog Explosion” graphically shows the “efficient means of exterminating feral hogs,” as the description put it.
Tannerite is a brand name target that explodes with “water vapor and a thunderous boom” when hit with a rifle.
But not everyone agrees with using such a method to kill the animals. The outdoors website Wide Open Spaces wrote that it would “never advocate blowing things up like this, or wasting meat like this,” but it did acknowledge that the use of Tannerite makes “for a heck of a video.”
