"Feral Pigs....they eat anything"

I think this photo Sam Prisk took while we were in Seisia, Cape York says it all. Drawn by one of the local kids and hung in the window of the local servo! Feral pigs, they do eat anything including sea turtle eggs. Pigs are a real menace on the Cape and a real risk to the existence of flatbacks. Close to 100% of nests laid on the mainland are dug up and eaten by feral pigs.
