Texas allowing people to use poison on feral hogs

State allowing people to use poison on feral hogs

On Thursday, Texas is giving the go-ahead to use poison against feral hogs.

The product, called Kaput, uses warfarin commonly known as rat poison.

The new pesticide is causing some worries for hunters and conservationists alike because other animals may be exposed.

The Hog Hunters Association started a petition to stop the program.

In two days, it's collected more than 1,200 signatures.
