· Hawk Hibernator
In the last 20 years, wild pigs have proliferated in Canada's Prairie Pothole Provinces. They may soon disperse south into the United States.
Recreational hog hunting makes it worse because a few people turn pigs loose in the woods to hunt them and their progeny. It takes less than a year for a hog to go feral.One thing that hasn’t proven effective is recreational hog hunting, which disperses sounders and causes some pigs to go nocturnal, making them harder to locate and remove. Brook says the most important thing people can do is to alert authorities. “Report any sightings of wild pigs,” he says. “There’s a Squeal on Pigs program in the U.S. and Canada. You can also report wild pigs to someone like your local game warden. Early detection and action are critical.”
