Feral Hog Management
Westervelt Wildlife Services understands potential threats and issues related to growing feral hog populations. Our friends at Mississippi State University have created a very informative video about hogs and methods to control them.
From Mississippi State WFA: A PICKUP LOAD OF PIGS addresses the issue of wild pigs (Sus scrofa) as a nuisance species of growing concern. The film discusses the biology, behavior, and distribution of wild pigs, and the damage and threats they present to native wildlife, agriculture, forestry, and public health in the United States. It also provides landowners with instruction of legal methods for controlling wild pig populations and damage on their property. Finally, the film demonstrates to policy makers and the general public that wild pigs are in fact a nuisance species that cause considerable ecological and economic damage (current estimates = $1.5 Billion annually).
Produced by Rex Allan Jones, a filmmaker specializing in natural resources media and nature videography.
