Ted Nugent Kills 455 Pigs With Machine Gun

Ted Nugent Kills 455 Pigs

Ted Nugent killed 455 pigs with a machine gun and dedicated the supposed massacre to Bill Maher and “animal rights freaks.”

The rocker and gun control advocate announced his kills while talking with SiriusXM’s Brett Winterble. Nugent claimed he killed the wild pigs in a Texas field last weekend.

Nugent, who has his own show on the Sportsman Channel, has been on several pig hunts. He appeared on Pigman: The Series last August, where he and the “Pigman,” Brian Quaca, hunted hogs from a helicopter.

Nugent’s comments about killing 455 pigs will likely irk the gun advocate’s critics, especially after he commented, “My haters will hate me more for that.” Ted Nugent added, “I killed 455 hogs with my machine gun. I did it for Bill Maher and all those other animal rights freaks out there.”

But Ted’s intentions when it comes to killing pigs are apparently good. He explained his actions were meant to help “save the environment from the destruction of these out-of-control pigs.” Nugent does have a point. Wild hogs in Texas cause about $500 million in property damage per year.

This isn’t the first time the Sportsman Channel show host has talked about saving the environment by killing pigs. In January he posted a message on Twitter, saying, “We kill pigs with machinegunsfrom helicopters to save the environment what r u doin.” And the situation with 455 pigs was apparently a “win win win” in Nugent’s book.

After he killed the pigs with a machine gun, Nugent explained, “We distributed tons of the most delicious pork to the soup kitchens and homeless shelters of this state.” Meaning that Nugent not only helped Texas cull some of its wild pig population, he also helped feed the homeless for a few days.

It is questionable how Ted and Pigman were able to kill the wild hogs from a helicopter, considering Texas has a ban on aerial sport-hunting. In this case, however, Pigman’s show released a statement saying hunting pigs in this manner is considered population control, not sport-hunting.

Texas’s feral hog population currently exceeds 1.5 million. The animals have a high reproduction rate and limited natural predators, allowing the population to expand at a currently uncontrollable rate. Considering this, perhaps we should be thanking Ted Nugent for killing 455 pigs with a machine gun. Or should we?

    Great guitar player but he is such a cock sucking dick head.

    POS IS ALL THIS FREAK IS…..HOPE HE GETS HIS GUTS BLOWN OUT BY AN ARA~~~~TED…YOU ARE THE TRUE FACE OF WHAT UGLY REALLY IS AND WHAT A BIG POS YOU ARE! HOPE YOUR LIFE IS SHORTENED BY KARMA!

  3. Rachael E. Fordham

    If you have to justify something then it was wrong in the first place. Ted Nugent is lashing out at animal activists but he either has no idea of what goes on inside the slaughterhoueses and/or factory farms, or just doesn't care. His karma will catch up wtih him.

    Rach…you know I love you. I agree that Nugent has really gone off his rocker lately. I think he hurts those of us that are trying to hang on to our gun rights, peacefully. Being a blow hard only closes people's ears. However, the wild hog thing is very justifiable. I have been hog hunting, though we didn't use machine guns and helicopters. Wild hogs tear up and eat our crops. They do so much damage to forests, and pastures. They tear up fencing, and ruin ponds. They carry diseases, and will kill your cats and dogs, given the chance. A full grown boar can kill a man easily. I didn't know there was such a problem until last summer, when I saw it for myself. Hog hunting is allowed year-round, with no limits. The government can't control the plague, so people pay hog hunters to clear their land of the pests, or they do it themselves. I don't think Nugent did what he claims, to such an extent….he's such a loud mouthed ass. He's all about getting everyone's dander up, lol.

  5. Rachael E. Fordham

    Hey Chris, although I am an animal activist, I am still practical. For instance, I do not like huntng, but if the deer are not culled there will be an overpopulation and they will end up starving to death, which is crueler in my opinion. It wa not so much what nugent did, but how he did it. He is ranting and raving like a freaking lunatic and really getting off kiling the pigs, instead of carrying out something that needed to be done with a little bit of integrity.

  6. Leighanne Spinney

    These were wild pigs living on this earth and should not be subjected to being gunned down sorry I like Ted but he is wrong wrong wrong in this massacre.

  7. Jaya Isasi Maizel

    he should be in jail! crazy an disgusting……………

  8. Katherine List

    Wow… it makes me feel so much better to know that TED NUGENT! has a machine gun (oh yeah… I already knew that… just momentarily forgot because he is such a NICE guy). Too bad he wasn't around in WhiteFish, MT this weekend with a Texas Hunting Showhost who was killed by an ordinary rifle of a jealous estranged husband. Nugent could have just killed off the entire neighborhood, saved the showhost who was drinking wine at 10:30PM with the wife of the estranged husband (wife also worked at Kalispell, MT gun manufacturing plant that the TX showhost was promoting)(it was just "business" wine drinking apparently) and saved the original shooter the trouble of pistol whipping his wife after the shooting and committing suicide later. That would have been much more impressive than killing a bunch of pigs (except for himself of course). The gun company in Kalispell that the Hunting Showhost was endorsing could have then also used good ole Ted to help out their and the NRA's cause since he would have been so "handy" at the time. Hey… only the good guys have guns right?

  9. Dawn Kennedy

    Who are we to decide population control? Is he playing god? We were meant to co exist with animals, not chop down heir forests and overrun their lands and shoot them when they start chewing on fences. This is all bullshit.

  10. Eliana Castro

    I really doubt that he moved his ass to give soup to poor people.

  11. Carol Kroll

    There was no decent sport involved in this. He apparently enjoys killing and thinks I'ts funny and something to brag about. He enjoys the fact that this kind of attitude about killing will upset people.

  12. Yvanna Nayeli Bresciani-Calloway

    Actually, I also am an animal activist c: I agree with your post, though, I do have to point out there's an overpopulation of deer due to hunting. In order to keep hunters happy and sell hunting licenses, states artificially boost the deer population by clearcutting forests in order to provide the edge habitat favored by deer and by leasing lands to farmers and requiring that the farmers grow deer-preferred crops. Reversely, deers also repopulate in greater amounts to make-up for the death of the bigger, tougher members that were hunted down.

  13. Deborah Zarett

    Many feral hogs are infested with parasites, making them inedible. So much for Turd Nugent's "feeding the poor."

  14. Katherine List

    OH . . . the good guys buy the guns and then sell them illegally to the bad guys . . . gun control should have happened WAY BEFORE NOW, because NOW is TOO LATE!

  15. Rachael E. Fordham

    Yvanna, I did not know that. What I was commenting on was how things were when I was growing up, and the governtment didn't do that back 30 something years ago. Thank you for sharing.

  16. Katherine List

    Yes, I thought he was quite a musician way back when. He actually didn't indulge in alcohol or drugs at that time, loved sex and was even a bit of a "pig" . .. . now days, i think he is a very scary individual . . .needs help, but will never get it because he is too way too much of a "PIG" to admit he has any sort of problem. Someone needs to keep a real close eye on that guy.

  17. Katherine List

    A few years ago someone machine gunned a bunch of elk down in Wyoming from a helicopter . . . so I am sure it will be the wolves just like up in Alaska, because they are "killing" the beloved elk . . . .humans make NO SENSE and are a shallow, fickle lot.

  18. John Taylor

    To all of you above: Cull? REALLY? Don't have the guts to call it what it really is? And then there's the hubris, that Nature NEEDS man to balance things out? News flash: Nature has been doing just fine without us for countless thousands of years. We've only even been capable of such feats in the past century or so. Meanwhile, Natural Selection is part of nature's plan. Another aspect is the balance between predator and prey, between the food and those eating it. When there are too many hogs, their numbers will decrease naturally, without our help.
    This isn't our planet to do with as we please. It's not our planet to slaughter every creature who gets in the way of what we want, either. If we hadn't taken out the predators, we wouldn't be having overpopulation problems. But the single biggest overpopulation problem is none other than Man.
    So please, let's stop trying to defend hunting and start working on getting along with this planet and the other living beings who also call it Home.

  19. Rick OGorman

    Well if he mowed down these pigs with a machine gun there wouldn't be any meat worth processing with so many bullet holes it would be worthless, what 455 pigs and they ended up with one slice of bacon, yeah you go Ted you draft dodging child molester, your just the example we need.

  20. Hank Hill

    Thank You Ted for helping feed the Homeless and getting rid of a few of the 1.5 million pigs in Texas,, a win win situation for sure,, if some of these Stupid anti-gun @$$Holes had 500million$ in property damage they would love it.

  21. Terry Ward

    This is easily explained.
    The Nugents are simply unable to carry their girly-porn mags around all the time, so this is their next best option for…
    well, you know.

  22. Jonathan Gilbert

    "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year," said Nugent, who has also defended Romney's "47 percent" comment. WE ARE COUNTING THE DAYS TEDDY.

  23. Shelley Powers

    I find it unlikely that he used a machine gun to kill pigs from a helicopter, in violation of numerous laws.

    If he did, with his ego, he'd post video.

  24. Jacqueline Untiedt

    He says he "did it for Bill Maher and all the animal rigjhts freaks out there". No, Ted, you did it because you spychopathic egotistical jerk. Let's not get it twisted.

  25. Gene Rednour

    I don't see why everyone is on here bitching and crying over these nuisance pigs that destroy property, farmland, crops..even eat small cows! Hell they will eat your dogs, cats and children if they could.. I have watched enough on tv to know that Texas, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and many other states have a major hog problem and a lot home owners hire others to get rid of them! Why do you people care if he killed 455 of the animals with a machine gun and helicopter? or would everyone still cry about it if he used a bow or crossbow? Regardless that needs to be done, I don't live in a state that has a problem with the pigs, but if I did; I would deff be out killing them and stocking up my freezer :). The hogs are more useful dead than they are alive. Homeless shelters, poor families, and or anyone else that could use the free meat all gain from this! So to all those animal activists that have nothing to do, try going to visit 1 of these working farms that are over run with hogs..talk to the farmer who's livelihood depends on the crops that are destroyed by the useless hogs! Wake up and do something with yourself besides this bullshit! It would be diff if they were killed and left laying, but that's not the case..

  26. Jacqueline Untiedt

    Perhaps your tv watching did not cover enough. These parasite infested pigs are not suitable to be feeding your family. Don't try so hard to make excuses for him. No one here is attacking the farmers, just the biggest pig of them all, Ted Nugent.

  27. Henry Bevis

    Yvanna, you are not making any sense at all. The law does give special privileges when it comes to killing wild hogs. It is always open season to kill hogs, as they do so much damage to crops that it is costing the farmer a lot of money that they don't need to lose. It is a problem all across the southeastern USA.

  28. Henry Bevis

    Your comment is BS. You don't understand how much damage these hogs do to crops and in the woods where they live. They root up many things in the woods to eat and a lot of it never comes back. Texas has between 1.5 to 2.0 million wild hogs.

  29. Henry Bevis

    You don't have a Clue as to what it takes to try and keep these hogs down to a number that the farmers can live with. They cause hundreds of millions of dollars of damage per year. The farmers have enough trouble making a profit with having to deal with hogs killing their crops.

  30. Henry Bevis

    Rachael E. Fordham in this case the hogs are way out of balance. The Sow can have more than one litter per year and they are grown in a few months and they do all of the damage to the undergrowth in the woods and also to the farmers crops.

  31. Linda Vassilion

    That's great, Ted! We need you to do this every week if you can and get others to do the same thing in the other states to wipe out these dangerous hogs that destroy wildlife, crops and kill domestic pets and humans! Right on!

  32. Marion Ambler

    Considering that the USA THROWS AWAY HALF the food it produces every year, I'd say you have more than enough to feed the hogs. AND had you not killed most of their predators already their population would not be 'way out of balance'. I. E….. Historically wolves were found all over the state of Texas…today there are none.

  33. Marion Ambler

    "The animals have a high reproduction rate and limited natural predators, allowing the population to expand at a currently uncontrollable rate." Well yeah about those 'limited predators'….Texas used to have wolves and now they have NONE. Already killed all the wolves. "The gray wolf formerly ranged over the western two-thirds of the state, but now is extirpated over all of the west, including Texas." http://www.nsrl.ttu.edu/tmot1/canilupu.htm.
    Bstrds. And this is how it will go…animal after animal will be killed off while people whine about populations 'being out of balance'.

  34. LeAnn Price

    I used to like this sorry excuse of a man…absolutely terrible!

  35. Marion Ambler

    Oh right…..and how many billion has the BP oil spill cost? There is NOTHING as destructive to the environment as humans. It's pathetically hilarious how people can rant about animals while they have brought the planet to the edge of destruction and caused insurmountable problems. And I won't even get into the fact the USA throws away HALF the food it produces every year. David Attenborough rightly said that humans were a plague on earth.

  36. Cindy Minde

    Ted Nugent is a FREAK OF NATURE! Gun control and purposly killing animals are two different issues. This is nothing more than a MOCHO thing for him, Want to be a man, Act like one!

  37. Laura Killen Byers

    This guy is more than a nut case…..He did way to many drugs in his past career and sounds like he is on crack now…He is a filthy ass of a man………..I think he is a time bomb waiting to to go off and is probably a threat to society……

  38. Michael C Arruda

    Funny that allot of people are posting that the animals were here first and we are the problem…..if you feel so strong about that dig a hole and jump in. Your taking up valuable pig space. Jackasses! Stop driving your gas burning cars too!

  39. Jan Roberts

    What a fuckin moron! Crawl into the hole he came out of! I hope someone shoots him between the eyes! He doesn't deserve to breath the air the pigs breath!

  40. Robert Levreault

    You know it's funny that Henry Bevis will not show his face and Nugent is just a out of control freak! Nugent in my opinion is a danger to himself and society. A real sportsman would never use a machine gun, the only ones that would hunt this way are people on ego trips! Henry I get what your saying that they do a lot of damage but you could have gotten great results from one or two groups of real hunters not the ones hiding behind assault riffles.

  41. Willy Man

    I see a lot of comments on here made by women that are so blatantly Communist it is scary. Nugent likes to stir the pot and I don't agree with is tactics at times, but if you idiots had even a remote idea of how bad the wild pig problem is, you would be praising him, not to mention he used the meat to feed thousands of people! What have YOU done?

    NOTHING!

    I know what you need to do though….

    STFU already, that's what.

    Now go vote in your fake elections and tell all your friends you are free, while you support all 10 planks of the communist manifesto, you ignorant landless peasants!

  43. Pam King

    out of balance as opposed to what? Humans are over populated, but we don't "cull" them. killing a species because they continue to live in an area humans decided to take over is wrong. (and Ted Nugent is a psychotic idiot!)

  44. John Schwerer

    Now tell me, how many more would have died had Sarah Palin been beside him? Now THERE is a match made in Hell! Seriously, I'd like to see confirmation of these "kills", notable from an ecological standpoint if true. NOW, he claims to be a "sportsman"….. Hunting from a Helicopter?

  45. John Schwerer

    Dawn, what you are saying is that Mankind does not have a god-given right to protect his food source in your statement. Consider the "Wild-Pig" hunts to be vermin control; Would you have any objection to destroying a rat population over-running the wheat supplies of your City?

  46. Rick Davison

    Ted may have done Texans a service by killing the pigs. Let's not forget, however, that Ted likes to kill things, regardless of the benefit to mankind. That makes him one scary dude.

  47. Lisa Hardy

    Makes me wonder what small article of manhood this nut is overcompensating for.

  48. Nancy Bowen Rattigan

    Takes one to know one. I thought machine guns were specifically stated as illegal in the United States by private citizens.

  49. Cheryl Stotler Miller

    It sounds so horrible….455 pigs slaughtered. But I have to agree with Henry Bevis said. Think of it this way. 1 boy and 1 girl pig make 6-8 piglets. Those grow up and have babies. So you have your original parents still having families and the 6 babies are now having 6-8. So now you have about 36 or so new babies who then grow and have more. All in a short period of time. The fact that the meat didn't go to waste should be applauded. Sometimes we have to stand back from our initial ah poor pig stance and realize what has to be done. If they were endangered it would be a different story.

  50. Scott Crisp

    Um, he's been doing it for 30-40 years. What is so hard to believe? He and his organization would gather deer from people who wanted to donate it, and they would deliver, cook, and serve it to homeless people.

  51. Scott Crisp

    There is a video of it in the story, did you not watch it" Can you please enlighten us with what laws he supposedly broke?

  52. Scott Crisp

    So, what you are saying we should start singing Kumbuya with them and hope that they want to "co-exist" with us?

  53. Nelson Parker

    Wild hogs in Texas cause about $500 million in property damage per year.
    But Ted’s intentions when it comes to killing pigs are apparently good. He explained his actions were meant to help “save the environment from the destruction of these out-of-control pigs.” Nugent does have a point.
    After he killed the pigs with a machine gun, Nugent explained, “We distributed tons of the most delicious pork to the soup kitchens and homeless shelters of this state.”
    The rest f the story!!
