Many states are asking residents to report sightings of wild pigs to help them determine population and course of action.
 

INDIANA

Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH) is asking hunters who spot or take a feral hog to report the animal to the agency. Reports will help BOAH and DNR determine if additional census, disease monitoring and/or control steps are necessary.

Anyone who sees or takes a feral hog should call BOAH at (877) 747-3038 or
email:
animalhealth@boah.IN.gov to report the approximate location, number, sex and estimated size of the animal(s).


MICHIGAN

Reporting the presence of wild hogs to the Conservancy at 517-641-7677 or via email at wildlife@miwildlife.org.

NEW YORK

If you do shoot or see feral swine please report it to the nearest DEC regional wildlife office (http://www.dec.ny.gov/about/558.html). Please report the number of swine seen or killed, whether any of them were piglets, the date, and the exact location (county, town, distance and direction from an intersection, nearest landmark, etc.).


OREGON

To halt the spread of invasive feral swine, the 2009 Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2221 that requires landowners and land managers to notify the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife when they become aware of free roaming feral swine on their property. The bill also makes it illegal to sell hunts for feral swine on public or private property.

Report Feral Swine Sightings and Hunting Harvest to your local ODFW office or to ODFW's Terrestrial Invasive Species coordinator, (503) 947-6000
