TYLER — A viewer pointed out she noticed less dead hogs on the sides of roads.
So where are they?
We took a closer look at how these pesky squealers have been affected by the drought this summer.
The Smith County Game Warden says they are still out there -- they're just in search of shade and water.
The winter months may be harder than the summer ones this year.
Chris Green tells us pigs rely heavily on acorns to get through the colder months.
It's look like they might be hard to find, like water is now.
"Because of the extreme heat, we've had a lack of rainfall which doesn't produce -- a lot of our trees are dying," Green said. "They don't have the nutrition so we're not gonna have a very good acorn crop. It appears so, at this stage, that it doesn't look good at all."
