Rocker and avid gun rights enthusiast Ted Nugent has revealed an unusual hobby. And it’s all for the benefit of “Bill Maher and all those other animal rights freaks out there.”
Nugent reportedly told the full story to SiriusXM’s Brett Winterble.

A look back at Nugent’s Twitter account shows that this wasn’t the first time he had partaken in this pastime. He posted this provocative message back in January:
During the radio interview, Nugent went on to explain that his actions were meant to help “save the environment from the destruction of these out-of-control pigs and I’m not talking about Washington D.C. or San Francisco … I’m actually talking about actual pigs.”
