Really i didn't do that. They dumped and them and have never done any study on them since their release. Not like the elk reintroduction or the failed red wolf project.

Oh and you forgot the mountain lions. 10 years ago the farthest east they were was far west texas (in the south anyhow). Now they have spread to Louisiana, with more more and more encounters each year. So at that rate they should be getting here in about 12-15 years. The main reason for their rapid spread - wild hogs. So at least there's that.
