GATESVILLE — Coryell County is hosting a Hog Out education effort, a free hamburger feed from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Gatesville Fire Station, 109 S. 23rd St.

Visitors who stop by the event will get a free burger and learn about Coryell County’s efforts to rid the county of hogs by watching a video or picking up a brochure. The county currently has a $10 per tail bounty on wild hogs.

County Commissioner Don Jones said he is expecting up to 200 people at the burger feed, but hopes even more will turn out to be educated.

So far, willing learners have been harder to find than wild pigs. Only 175 people are on record as having been educated in the Hog Out program through other events in the county, Jones said.

For information about the Hog Out, contact Jones at (254) 223-1210.
