DNR tells hunters to shoot wild pigs

Email

State wildlife officials are encouraging hunters to help eliminate a growing population of feral pigs by reporting feral pig sightings or shooting the pigs.

Feral pigs are also known as wild pigs, wild hogs, wild boars, European wild boars, Russian wild boars, or razorbacks. They are found in as many as 23 states.

In some states they are descendents of European swine released by Spanish and European explorers.
