The stunning Jade Hammond did much to promote the hunting of feral pigs with an appearance on SBS television show, The Feed.
Miss Bacon Busters 2013, Jade took producers of the news, culture and technology show out to property near her home in Walgett for a hunt.
To their credit, the show allowed the 23-year-old hunter to explain her sport and the benefits to the local farmers in battling the 22million feral pigs that are ruining crops.
“You don’t know until you come out here and you see the damage they do to the crops,” says Jade. “You can’t say that it is cruel. They are not native to Australia. So I am not killing a kangaroo.
“They eat the farmers crops, so they’ll eat their barely, wheat, chickpeas, sorghum, anything they plant.
“People don’t realise that’s what they do. They just see it as we’re killing an animal.”
