For several years the staff at the refuge has tried controlling the population of wild pigs by killing as well as trapping them but these measures have proved to be inadequate. The hogs have already caused significant damage to the crops. This refuge was set up in the year 1992 to save the habitat of two songbirds marked as endangered species. It is spread over an area of 23000 acres and covers Williamson, Travis and Burnet counties. The evidence of the wild animals disturbing the birds have not been found though. However, they make the life of the other animals in the refuge a burden.
