Wild Hogs Spotted in 12% of Indiana Counties
Indiana Ag Connection - 11/09/2023

Feral hogs are a growing problem in Indiana, with sightings reported in 12% of the state's counties. These animals can cause significant damage to crops and livestock, and they also pose a threat to human health by transmitting diseases such as brucellosis and leptospirosis.

Feral hogs are not native to Indiana. They are thought to have escaped from captivity or been released by hunters. Once in the wild, feral hogs reproduce rapidly and can quickly establish large populations.

Feral hogs are omnivores and will eat almost anything, including crops, livestock, and wildlife. They also root in the ground for food, which can damage crops and infrastructure.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is working to control the spread of feral hogs in the state. The DNR encourages landowners to report feral hog sightings and to take steps to protect their property from damage.

Feral hogs are a growing problem in Indiana, but there are steps that landowners and the public can take to control their spread. By reporting feral hog sightings and taking steps to protect your property, you can help to keep these invasive animals at bay.
