Sportsman Channel is unleashing a full of week of "Aporkalypse” beginning Aug. 4.
By focusing on the eradication of feral hogs, the Sportsman Channel hopes the programming will educate both urban and rural audiences about the extensive damage caused by the animals and the importance of controlling the feral hog population.
“We are proud to give our viewers the 2014 version of the hit stunt Aporkalypse – the bacon will be flying this year,” said Marc Fein, executive vice president of programming and production for Sportsman Channel.
Feral hogs cause around $1.5 billion in damages and control across the country each year. In April, the USDA announced a $20 million program to help states control the expanding population of feral swine.
