January 9, 2018

Location: Fellsmere, St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park

I'm known as a feral Pig,
You can blame Hernando Desoto for my release.
He brought me here in 1539,
Since then I've become a destructive beast.

I trample on flowers, I root up the ground,
I can carry diseases and parasites.
I can hurt people and critters with my tusks,
But I taste yummy if I am barbecued right!
