Hog Removal

 

 

Feral Hog - Ecological Impact

 

Wild hogs directly compete with native wildlife for food and they can negatively impact natural ecosystems. Hogs present problems related to land, wildlife, and timber management. They can cause significant damage to agriculture and pose disease risks to humans, as well as, domestic livestock. Wild hogs are extremely difficult to control once they become established.  It is now illegal to release hogs into the wild in South Carolina.
