Crop Damage Caused by Wild Pigs
Feral pigs can damage agricultural crops by eating or trampling them.
They can also damage crops while rooting and wallowing which
- damages plant roots
- creates holes and ruts that can damage farm equipment and endanger operators
Wild hogs may occasionally prey on livestock, especially newborn lambs, goats or calves; when this happens, they are usually attracted to birthing grounds by the scent of afterbirth or fetal tissue.
