By KSLA-TV 12, Shreveport

NORTH LOUISIANA - A new bill in Texas is allowing hunters to take to the skies in hot air balloons to hunt feral hogs. Louisiana may not be too far behind. "The issue with feral hogs is that the population is increasing," said Dr. Glen Gentry, with LSU Ag Center. "I think the estimate has gone up now about 100,000 from 500 to 600."
