One interesting tidbit: You have to eliminate 70% of the feral pig population every year, just to keep it from increasing.

Which sounds right, without eliminating them, it would mean a 233% increase in population yearly, or each sow can lay 3.5 piglets in average. It fits. Of course, this without considering mortality, and assuming a population distribution of 2 females for one male. (in reality, a lot of them perish in the wild, victims of diseases, predators, fight for mating, but otoh, they lay litters of 7, 10 or more...)
edit: after a search
