The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has released a new video series, Feral Swine in America, which highlights the effects of wild boar damage on crops through personal stories by American farmers.

 

Dr. Dale Nolte, National Manager of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) National Feral Swine Damage Management Program, said the videos aim to highlight the diverse and widespread wild boar damage affecting domestic farmers.

 

There are three videos uploaded currently covering the states of Mississippi, Texas, and Oklahoma, with future episodes to highlight wild boar damage management and removal efforts.
