Australian Pig Hunting

The Australian continent is no stranger to the concept of invasive and destructive species. And feral pigs are no exception to this. Running wild in large areas of eastern Australia, the pigs are known for their destruction to wheat and sorghum crops and farmers have taken a strong stance in implementing a fierce eradication scheme. 

However, whilst most rural property owners have taken to extermination via rifle, a small sub-culture of "pig doggers" has emerged. The practice of pig-dogging involves the use of hunting dogs in order to track and immobilize pigs before a knife is used for the final act. In this brutal sport between men, dogs and pigs a bloody nocturnal weekend pass-time becomes a gladiatorial spectator sport with the latter two species suffering injury and/or death.
