In North America, feral pigs have been present since the 16th century. Until recently, their range was restricted to the southern states. The feral hog population has been on the increase since the mid 1980s. According to data on feral swine mapping, feral hogs were reported in 17 states in 1982. In 2004, 28 states. Today, 35 states report established feral hog populations and two are pending mainly due to an abundance of food, no natural predators, and the pigs are able to adapt and reproduce quickly. Wildlife biologists estimate as many as 5,000,000 feral pigs roam across the United States.
#2 PREDATOR OF LIVESTOCK!
"They're the No. 2 predator of livestock in Texas. Based on population models calculated for Texas populations, feral hogs have an estimated 7% rate of population growth annually. Thousands of acres of corn have to be replanted in Texas every spring because feral hogs root up the seed. The biggest concern is that feral pigs can carry diseases like Brucella*."
B. Higginbotham is a Professor and Extension wildlife & fisheries specialist.
*Annually 60% of Brucella cases that occur in the USA are within Texas and California.

WILD HOG (FERAL PIGS) HABITAT & ACTIVITY
Feral hogs typically travel in family groups called sounders, comprised of two sows and their young. Mature boars are usually solitary, only joining the herd to breed. They are serious road hazards because they're active at night, dark in color and their eyes don't shine when lights hit them.
Wild hogs are omnivorous (meaning they eat both plant and animal matter). They are very opportunistic feeders and much of their diet is based on seasonal availability. Animal matter includes insects, snails, earthworms, reptiles, and carrion (dead animals), as well as live mammals & birds if given the opportunity. Feral hogs feed primarily at night and during twilight hours, but will also feed during daylight in cold or wet weather.

Visible signs include damage to trees, or utility poles, hair left on fences where hogs pass through. (The height of the rub often indicates the size of the hog.) Rooting is easily recognized because it looks as if the soil has been plowed.
