Webinar on Feral and Wild Pig ID
In October, the CWHC hosted a webinar with Travis Black, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, on identification of feral and wild pigs. Over 40 participants from various organizations including federal, provincial and territorial governments from across Canada attended. The webinar was intended to provide these jurisdictions with the tools to enhance their preparedness in order to better respond and deal with this invasive species.
Travis gives this talk to his new staff every year to ensure they can identify the differences between wild and feral pigs and their domestic cousins. He also goes through recognizing their tracks, wallows, rubs and the other types of damage they can cause.
Travis has been working on feral pigs for over 20 years and Colorado recently reported they had successfully eradicated them. Their work is not done though, they will continue to monitor and be vigilant for any incursion of this invasive species.
