Through Austin Neighborhood, Wild Pigs Walk Confidently
The number of wild pigs in and around Texas is tremendously high. These beasts have an endless appetite and they decimate the crops by running across in herds.
A resident from the Oak Crest community, on 30 December 2019, shared a video in which a dozen of the swine can be seen coming out for a 3 a.m. stroll. Further in the video, they can be seen encroaching on neighbourhoods in hunt of food or a potential meal.
A lot of efforts have been put to eliminate them. Even the wild pig hunters have been called to hunt them down. the officials of the state have now approved the use of helicopters as well as hot air balloons so that the hunters can fire upon them from the air.
Till now nothing has worked and these wild boars continue to increase in numbers at an astonishing level. Since they are ornery, it is quite hard to capture them. Among the hunting community, there have been many stories of charging wild pigs.
Sid Miller, Texas Agriculture Commissioner, once suggested the idea of placing poison strategically across Texas to kill the animals. But the idea was put down by a judge. Deer and different creatures could become blow-back to the toxic substance, pundits contended, in addition to the ingested toxin would demolish the pig meat in making it unsatisfactory for the market.

С 5 января розничные цены на автомобильное топливо в Беларуси меняются
Цены на бензин и дизельное топливо на АЗС с 5 января растут на 1 копейку.
С воскресенья бензин АИ-92-К5-евро будет стоить 1,65 руб., АИ-95-К5-евро и дизель - 1,75 руб., АИ-98-К5-евро - 1,97 руб. Постепенное изменение цены на топливо необходимо для обеспечения стабильной работы нефтеперерабатывающих заводов в республике, что объясняется рядом факторов. «Учитывая меняющиеся рыночные условия, цены на нефтепродукты не только выросли, но и снизились», - сказал концерн. - Решения об их изменении принимаются на основании полной оценки основных ценовых факторов - цены на закупаемую нефть, налогового бремени и курса национальной валюты. Однако это далеко не все факторы, определяющие экономику нефтеперерабатывающего завода. В 2019 году мировые цены на нефть выросли на 17%, а цены на топливо в Беларуси выросли в среднем на 13%. В январе нового года цены на нефть продолжали расти, иногда достигая 68 долларов. По подсчетам Белнефтехима: При нынешнем мировом уровне цен только в результате негативного влияния налогового маневра на российскую нефтяную отрасль стоимость этого сырья для белорусских НПЗ вырастет более чем на 20 долларов за 1 тонну, что составляет 5 % от уровня цен 2019 года. Концерн подчеркнул, что его ценовая стратегия уравновешивает интересы производителей и потребителей.
