The precise whens and hows aren’t something that Thompson wants to discuss, even today, though he’s happy to talk about the broader brushstrokes. The problem is much newer in Canada, where some pigs first escaped or were released from fledgling wild boar farms less than three decades ago. They were anaesthetised using intramuscular injection of one of two anaesthetic protocols (Zoletil™, ketamine and xylazine; or medetomidine, ketamine and butorphanol).

A new approach for reducing the population is to mark one individual from a sounder of pigs, the Judas pig, and allow it to locate other sounders for future removal. An annual harvest rate of 66 percent is required to hold the feral hog population in check, the scientists believe. Joseph Meyers, of Flying J Services, is hired by farmers to eliminate the feral hog population and hunts them from his helicopter. We built a Bayesian population model and applied it to explore the implications for population control of various management options combining culling and/or contraception.

Based on these results, we propose a framework of criteria to guide decisions regarding the suitability of different options to manage human–feral hog confl icts in different contexts.

An innovative technique that has been proposed to reduce feral pig damage involves placing radio transmitters on trapped animals and tracking them following release to reveal the location of other pigs in the area (Littauer 1993;McIlroy 1995;McIlroy and Gifford 1997; Wilcox et al. contained vertebrate prey comprising 20 species, including 11 mammals, and totaling 167 individuals.Keywords feral, pig, unmaking, domestic-wild, Australia D omesticated pigs (Sus scrofa) were introduced to Australia by European settlement, and over time a significant population began living independent of human husbandry. Immature pigs may also be less effective as they are often excluded from family groups and tend to form temporary groups of their own. After a few bursts of revision, the book was almost there, ready to be sent to Jim Driver at Do-Not Press.

Evidence-based practices that facilitate equitable outcomes across diverse populations are essential to identify.It was a first-of-its-kind attempt to get scientists, conservationists, sportsmen and others together to figure out a way to contain hogs and stop their spread.
