Lonely pig hunters can search for love on Facebook page
SINGLE, attractive and looking for love.
There are plenty of romantics on the internet searching for the special someone - but can they kill a feral pig?
That's what the singles on the 'Sexy pig hunters looking for a husband/wife' Facebook page can do.
And there's plenty in Central Queensland looking for that lucky lady or fella to have in their life.
Lou Warren, editor of Chicks Smashing Grunters magazine, is the brains behind the page.
"There seemed to be a call for single pig hunters," the Proserpine woman said.
"My pig hunting group seemed to be full of singles and non-singles, and I figured no one likes to be lonely."
The page has more than 8000 likes and continues to grow with more single profiles every day.
If single pig hunters are keen to try and find love, they simply have to message their details to Lou, who is a pig hunter herself, and provide some details about themselves.
And of course, they need to send in a photo of their kill.
"They need to supply verification they are a pig hunter, so a photo with a dead feral pig is needed, their age and closest town and state," Lou said.
And it seems to be working for some, with Lou saying they've had success stories.
"They'll message me and say 'thanks, I've met someone'," Lou said.
Feral pigs have been part of the Queensland landscape since about 1865 and are considered a pest.
Lou, who has been pig hunting since she was a kid, said there seemed to be a pig epidemic.
"Hunters are trying to do a good deed for the country," she said.
"(Feral pigs) are classed in Queensland as a pest, and as a landowner it's your duty of care to help eradicate them."
She said the pigs damaged agriculture by destroying natural fauna, eating turtle eggs and even sugar cane.
