An invasive species, wild hogs can grow to over 400 pounds and have aggressive reproduction capabilities. A female can give birth to her first litter at seven months of age. She can have up to three litters per year, with as many as twelve offspring per litter. This species is especially concerning for farmers and ranchers because their population can wreak havoc in multiple ways.
Crop Destruction - Trampling and rooting activity can quickly destroy valuable crops, trees, and landscaping. After investing significant amounts of time and resources in growing these resources, these losses can be devastating.
Threat To Livestock And Wildlife - Wild pigs compete with livestock and wild game species for multiple resources, including food, habitats, and other commodities. Feral hogs are known for ruining watering and livestock feeding facilities and feeders for wildlife. In some cases, wild hogs may prey on kid goats, young fawns, and lambs.
Wetland Destabilization - Much the same way rooting and trampling activity from feral hogs negatively impacts agricultural landscapes, it also destabilizes wetlands. Ground-nesting birds, including quail and turkey, are vulnerable to having their nests destroyed and their eggs consumed.
