But wait – as they say in all those annoying TV commercials – there is an even greater threat to the U.S., as reported recently in the Globe and Mail. Montana faces a possible invasion of feral pigs from Canada, which have been spotted just a few miles from the border. Apparently the pigs can be difficult to monitor from the air because they bury themselves in mud and also burrow into the snow to make “pigloos.” I am not making this up. Who could? See https://www.theglobeandmail.com/world/article-montana-seeks-to-keep-feral-hogs-from-canada-at-bay/.
So while those in and around Washington ham it up about the impeachment drama and the northwest goes hog wild, swine flu may be the biggest health risk this winter.
