Not my experience in my climate. I've not yet found a no-irrigation food growing technique here.

You could even selectively breed them, choosing to continue lines that fatten up faster, or that have better fur, etc. You might be able to breed some of the wild ones with domestic ones to create a good local hybrid.
If nothing else it would be a cool project and it would help other people who are thinking about doing similar projects so they can build off your successes and make sure not to make the same mistakes.
