Squeal on Pigs (Wild Boar)

Go To Image Link

Wild Boar (feral pigs) can be sighted across Alberta and are considered invasive pests. These animals can damage property, agricultural crops, pastures and the environment, and are known to endanger people and animals. Report any sightings through 310-FARM or AF.wildboar@gov.ab.ca. (Hunting is not an effective control option.) If you see a wild boar, please report this to Lamont County Agricultural Services so it can be followed up on (do not attempt to shoot, as they get very cagey and this impacts control efforts).
