Feral Pig

Sus scrofa

Domestic pigs (Sus scrofa) were introduced to Australia by early settlers. Subsequent accidental and deliberate releases resulted in the wild (feral) population establishing throughout Australia. Feral pigs damage crops, stock and property, spread weeds and transmit diseases such as Leptospirosis and Foot and Mouth. They also cause environmental damage, digging up large areas of native vegetation and spreading weeds. Feral pigs are becoming an increasing problem in SE Qld. Feral pigs can be managed by a combination of cage trapping and field shooting.

Pest Animal Management Queensland can design a site specific control program that will remove your feral pig problem.
