    I asked Siri..."what is kaput" She said..."It is the sound that you hear when DJ fires into the ground at running hogs". I was impressed!

    Your hearing may need a little help... they're probably talking about the flies, not that you're fly.

    shouldn't you be out killing something instead of harassing me?

    Gotta love this. So Sid Miller approved the use of Kaput. Claims it is safe. Note that TPWD apparently was not involved in the process in any real manner and isn't up to speed on it because they were blindsided as well.

    TPWD: Feral Hogs
    So the primary government agency responsible for wildlife in Texas was not even part of the program involved in approving Warfarin.

    Press Release
    Texas Hog Hunters Association
    March 2, 2017


    This afternoon, State District Judge Jan Soifer issued a temporary restraining order enjoining Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller and the Texas Department of Agriculture from implementing the “emergency rule” that they had issued to try to facilitate the use of rat poison across Texas lands for feral hogs. Specifically, Judge Soifer’s Order stated in part that Defendants Sid Miller and the Department “did not follow the requirements of the Texas Administrative Procedure Act . . . and so therefore the rule is invalid.”

    The Plaintiff in the case was Wild Boar Meats, L.L.C, a feral-hog processing business headquartered in Hubbard, Texas. The Texas Hog Hunters Association (THHA) and the Environmental Defense Fund also intervened in the case on the side of Wild Boar Meats.

    Eydin Hanson, Vice President of THHA, said “15,000 members and supporters of THHA have signed a petition against this ill-advised rule. Spreading rat poison across Texas lands would hurt Texas hunters, Texas hunting-supply businesses, Texas feral-hog meat processing businesses, Texas ranchers, and the Texas environment. We are very grateful that Judge Soifer ruled in our favor. We hope that Commissioner Miller will now follow the law and allow public comment and careful consideration before proposing use of any poison on feral hogs. The emergency rule would have damaged feral-hog control in Texas rather than helping it. We urge all Texans to contact their elected representatives to make sure that Texas lands are not poisoned in this manner.”

    I have a friend that works very closely with the EDF as much as I do not care for them I let him know about this last week while he was on his way to DC. Maybe that helped out a little?? Who knows. I think the judge did a good thing. Thank you Judge!!!!!

    I also just sent another letter to Cornyn because his reply to me was comical to say the least. His response was about animal cruelty and that he would watch out for it if it came up during session. So I had to explain in more detail and in a more forceful manner. We will see what he sends back this time.
