Squeal on Pigs Campaign
Brought to you by Oregon, Idaho and California
About the campaign
The Oregon, Washington, and Idaho Invasive Species Councils have joined forces to communicate the importance of reporting sightings of feral swine so that landowners can receive technical guidance and assistance to eradicate this invasive species from the Pacific Northwest.
Pigs are native to Europe, and have spread across the globe with the help of humans, in many cases hunters looking for a new challenge. Not confined by fences, they damage crops, livestock, wildlife and the ecosystem.
The pigs typically forage in areas around rivers or streams, and their destructive rooting behavior can increase erosion, degrade water quality and help spread noxious weeds.
