The result of years utter stupidity
First hunters and ranchers wiped out all apex predators, for sport or other nonsensical reasons. Then when other species naturally grow out of control, instead of opting for the obvious solution of restoring the natural balance by re-introducing said predators, we get nonsense such as what you see on Hogs gone Wild: a bunch of idiots filling up their freezers under the guise of conservation. The line of reasoning that leads these people to believe that hunting, trapping and poisoning animals is the way to go is not only ignorant, but simply dangerous. It's the same line of logic that has led to deforestation, habitat loss, extinct species and degradation of biodiversity all over the world.
