Georgia farmers face more wildlife problems

Georgia farmers face a number of issues every year while they farm. But more and more say there is a growing population of wildlife invading their fields.

Farmers say wild hogs made their way to Southwest Georgia about 11 years ago and have been reproducing exponentially every year since.

The state agriculture department attributes millions of dollars in losses to the boars every year.

Farmers say the hogs stay in the fields all year.

Monday at 6 p.m., Wright Gazaway takes a deeper look at what farmers and state leaders are doing to combat this growing problem in a special report: Hog Wars.
