Feral hog numbers appear to be increasing in many areas across the Texas landscape and elsewhere in the nation. These animals damage crops, livestock, pets, landscaping, and natural habitat in rural and urban areas alike.

Feral hogs also have the potential to contribute to water pollution. Due to their numbers, distribution, and behavior, feral hogs can increase the levels of sediment, nutrients, and bacteria in streams and lakes. In some situations, water quality may become so degraded that it cannot support recreation or aquatic life.

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is working to address this growing local issue. By working to provide information and assistance to watershed landowners, we may reduce the effects of feral hog activity.
