DISCOVERY CHANNEL’S HIT SERIES ‘HOGS GONE WILD’
RETURNS WITH WILD PIGS RUN AMUCK
–Tuesdays at 10PM Beginning April 19–
(Silver Spring, Md.) – They’re big, they’re strong, they’re mean… and they’re wreaking havoc on businesses, farms and homeowners across the country. Growing as large as 700 pounds each, the estimated six million free-roaming wild hogs in the U.S. pose significant health risks and cause costly damages in cities large and small every year. HOGS GONE WILD, which returns to Discovery Channel on Tuesday, April 19 at 10PM ET/PT, follows the men and women behind the toughest pest control companies as they embark on a never-ending quest to catch these aggressive animals that are multiplying in population every day (two hogs and their offspring can produce thousands of their kind!).
Through seven all-new episodes, HOGS GONE WILD digs deep into the issues caused by feral hogs and the efforts being made to control their population, which is crucial to mitigating physical danger and extensive, and sometimes irreplaceable, damage. Three teams of trappers – in Florida, Texas and Hawaii – work to combat these destructive creatures, on behalf of farmers, property owners and park rangers, and find them a more suitable environment. With the help of their trusty dogs, infrared night vision, state-of-the-art trapping devices and a know-no-fear attitude, the trappers featured on HOGS GONE WILD stop at nothing to find and catch even the deadliest of pig.
HOGS GONE WILD first premiered on Discovery Channel in January. The series is produced for Discovery Channel by Film Garden. Michelle Van Kempen is executive producer from Film Garden. For Discovery Channel, Josh Berkley is executive producer.
