Feral Hogs Community of Practice

Brought to you by:

An Interactive Informational Resource for
Landowners, Hunters & Wildlife Management Professionals

The Feral Hogs Community of Practice (CoP) is an online resource area with information, expert advice, webinars, learning lessons, and other peer-reviewed information concentrating on the control, adaptive management, biology, economics, disease risks, and the human interface of feral hogs across the United States. It is part of the national eXtension Initiative which serves the public by making both information and experts available 24/7 on over 100 topic areas. Over the past 30 years, feral hog (also variously known as wild pigs, feral pigs, feral swine, Eurasian wild boar, European wild boar, and Russian boar) numbers and distribution have grown dramatically and have now reached a critical level across much of the United States; causing significant economic, biologic, environmental, and natural resource damage. Between 1900 and 1990, the national population size and distribution of feral hogs had been relatively constant, numbering between 500,000 to 2 million animals and being found in 18 to 21 states. The National Feral Swine Mapping System program currently reports 37 states with established populations of feral swine. The nationwide population is now estimated at more than 6 million animals; which makes them one of the most abundant large invasive animal species to be found in the United States at present. This CoP provides critical information, resources, and expert application of knowledge on the biology, history, damage, diseases, management and control of feral hogs.
