Looks like a bunch of feral pigs are doing their best to give it to the Bourgeoisie Pigs in San Jose.

As KRON4 reports, around two-dozen wild pigs are causing some serious damage to the Coyote Creek Golf Course each month. Mike Fish, Coyote Creek’s general manager, says these porcine pirates come out of the surrounding wilds and tear up the golf course in search of grubs in the soil. It’s costing Coyote Creek about $50,000 a month.

Pigs are smart as hell, so they’ve gotten hip to traditional traps and figured out ways to circumvent the fences. With that in mind, San Jose City Councilman Johnny Khamis suggested thinning the herd by hiring an archer, since shooting guns is illegal within city limits. That idea has bee squashed though.

As KRON4 notes “The city says it’s too risky with highway 101 nearby and a wounded pig is a dangerous pig.”

It seems at this point, Coyote Creek has not caught a single pig.
