Oscar Scherer State park, and …..
Myakka River State Park are both jewels in Sarasota county’s commitment to the wild areas of the county. The county has attempted to buffer these State Parks with smaller, but crucial, county parks, and has created several wonderful wildlife – rich habitats just minutes from suburbia.
Feral, or wild, hogs are quite common and quite disruptive to native landscape. This hog trap was photographed in Myakka Park, where professional trappers are paid to harvest them out. (The trap is deep in the very center of the photo)
This mostly native rangeland lies between the north border of Myakka State Park and the ranch where a miniature horse was attacked by an unknown animal last month ( March 2010)
This dead feral hog appears to have been killed around the same time as the horse was attacked less tha a mile away. Hmmmm…. ( see mailbag for more on this)
