With conflicts between humans and feral hogs on the rise, this website is designed to provide landowners and residents with the information necessary to make informed management decisions.
The website contains ecological information on feral hogs as well as information on their history and origins. When managing any invasive organism, understanding the biological background is a key component of developing a successful management strategy.
