Damage Caused by Feral Hogs Can be Effectively Controlled

Wed, 05 Mar 2014 12:28:59 CST

Damage Caused by Feral Hogs Can be Effectively Controlled
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation is teaming up with North Central Texas College to host a Managing Wild Hog Damage Workshop.


The workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, March 27, at First State Bank Center for the Performing Arts at North Central Texas College, located at 1525 W. California St. in Gainesville, Texas.


This workshop is designed to provide foundational knowledge on ways to control damage due to invasive wild hogs (also known as “feral hogs”). Attendees will receive information on wild hog history, biology (including diseases and parasites), and trapping techniques and designs.


“Feral hogs are a tremendous problem in the United States, having invaded more than 40 states,” said Russell Stevens, wildlife and range consultant for the Noble Foundation. “This invasive species is causing serious problems for agricultural producers and many others. They compete with native wildlife and damage pastures and crops, creating a need for effective control methods. This workshop will present facts, dispel myths about feral hogs and offer sound guidance for controlling this invasive species.”


Registration is $20, and lunch will be provided. For more information or to register, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Jackie Kelley at 580.224.6360.
