I can vouch for the pig numbers myself. My mates farm half way back to Thames has got pigs running all over it.
I am still keeping an eye on a few hardy or foolhardy hunters who have started to hunt and eat the pork again. North of the town here in the Moehau area DoC has managed to clone a group of Civilians who run around hand spreading 1080 which curtails any pig hunting into the future. Now they are starting to talk about needing to poison pigs as they are becoming a major pest. Self forefilling prophecy it is.
