NC Wildlife Commission Unveils New Feral Swine Reporting Tool

In late 2020, North Carolina Wildlife experts designed a new website and reporting tool dedicated to the growing need for feral swine management. Feral swine or wild hogs are invasive and known to cause great damages to crops and property.

“The N.C. Feral Swine Task Force comprises state and federal agencies that are working collaboratively to learn more about and manage the impacts of feral swine in the state. In addition to the Commission, current members include USDA-Wildlife Services, N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Natural Resource Conservation Service, N.C. Cooperative Extension Service, USDA-Veterinary Services, N.C. Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts and N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.” Source: NC Wildlife Commission

If you know of any feral hog herds use this reporting tool to contact an NC Wildlife specialist.
