Feral hogs are one of the costliest invasive species in the United States, and their population has increased considerably in the last 35 years. They do more than $1.5 billion in damages annually to crops, farmland, property, and water quality. Feral hogs can damage wastewater treatment systems, damage pond liners, and deprive native species of food and habitat. They also pose a safety hazard due to their size, speed, and tusks.
Last month AL.com posted a detailed article highlighting the difficulties of controlling this nuisance species population which is linked here. The article points out the growing concerns as the feral hog continues to breed at an accelerating rate.
