Michigan and Feral Pigs

As explained here, the state of Michigan is out to eliminate feral pigs.

Unfortunately, Mangalitsa pigs (and hybrids) have traits that make them look feral. E.g. long snouts & striped young.

Mark Baker, a farmer with some Mangalitsa purebreds (and crosses) is soliciting funds for his legal case against the state.

I think it will be terrible if, come April 1, Michigan authorities wipe out all the Mangalitsa pigs. It is hard to believe it could happen, but I'm not seeing anything to convince me they won't do it.
