State Senator Sponsors Feral Swine Legislation

by

LANSING, MI (Metro Source) - State Senator Rick Jones is sponsoring legislation to designate feral swine as an invasive species. Jones, a Republican from Grand Ledge whose district includes Allegan County, says wild hogs are aggressive and destructive and the best course of action is to establish an effective program to eliminate the hogs which are already in the wild. The USDA says feral swine cause more than 1.5 billion dollars of damage to farms, property and vehicles each year. Officials estimate Michigan has over two thousand feral swine and out of the state's 83 counties, 72 have reported sightings, shootings or trappings of the animals.
