Feral Pigs in BC

Feral Pigs in BC

The wild pig reported near Liard Hot springs recently may have been a mis-communication, but feral pigs have been found in near Williams Lake and in Northeast BC, and they are not good. Feral pigs can be destructive to ecosystems and rangelands, and can spread disease to wildlife and your farm animals. Pigs are not native to BC - we brought them here for farming, but some have gotten loose or were released, a good example of how we - people - cause the spread of invasive species. If you see a live pig that is not on a farm, it is likely feral - report it at www.reportinvasives.ca or download the apps to your phone and report them right where you find them: www.reportaweedbc.ca . Check here for more information on feral pigs from BC's Inter-Ministry Working Group on Invasive Species.
