    [MSNBC視頻] 野豬威脅著德克薩斯州的郊區



    Wild hogs threaten Texas suburb
    野豬威脅著德克薩斯州的郊區

    Evidences of intruders in the Waterbrook West Subdivision in Missouri City are in lawns and backyards throughout the neighborhood, dry patches of grass and torn up fields. But when night falls, it’s time for more damage when packs of wild hogs roam boldly from house to house.

    在Missouri州的Waterbrook 西部住宅開發區上,到處都是闖入者留下的證據,如遍布于整個街區的草坪和后院上的干燥的小草塊和毀壞的土地。不過當夜晚降臨以后,隨著一群群的野豬在各棟房子之間大膽的游逛,又到了產生更多的破壞的時候了。

    “It’s probably, 30 or 40 of them, in a little of pack they have.” Ali Hinkle has lived here for a decade and sees the hogs every night. “This is the biggest problem I can remember having in ten years.” His solution is to hunt them with his bow and arrow and cook them for food. Other neighbors are resorting to traps, or hope their fences will hold up.

    “它們每一小群都大概有30到40只左右。”Ali Hinkle在這兒已經生活十年了,每晚都能看到這些野豬。“這是我在十年里能記得住的最大的問題。”他的解決辦法是用他的弓和箭獵捕它們,然后把它們當食物吃掉。其它的鄰居采用陷阱的辦法,或寄希望于他們的柵欄能夠支持得住(而不會被野豬拱垮)。

    Texas wildlife service said there are about 2 millions hogs in the state and that number is increasing. Since they don’t have any predators, they have a high survival rate. And their population is hard to control because they reproduce so quickly.

    德克薩斯州的野生生物保護機構說在這個州大約有2百萬頭野豬,而且這個數量還在進一步地增長。因為它們沒有任何捕食天敵,所以他們有很高的存活率。再加上他們的繁殖是如此之快,他們的數量很難被控制住。

    “One pig can produce, you know, 25 little ones a year, or more.” And with more construction popping up in outlined areas, their habitats are shrinking. Ali said they come from the woods behind his house because they have nowhere else to go. “There used to be a lot more woods over there, but the new housing development right there pushed everything kind of over into these neighborhoods.”

    “你知道,一頭豬一年能產25頭或更多的小豬。”而且隨著在這片區域里冒出的更多的房屋建筑,它們的棲息地正在進一步地縮小。Ali說這些野豬來自與他房子后面的樹叢因為它們沒有別的地方可去。“那邊曾經有比現在多得多的樹林,但是那邊的新的房產開發幾乎把所有的動物都趕到這邊的街區里來了。”
