North Dakotans Urged To Report Wild Pig Sightings

November 23, 2012, 6:25 AM

BISMARCK, SD -

North Dakota officials are urging anyone who spots a wild pig to report it immediately, after sightings in neighboring states.

State Veterinarian Susan Keller says wild pigs - also known as feral swine - can carry diseases that can threaten domestic pigs and other livestock. Jeb Williams with the state Game and Fish Department says wild pigs also compete with native wildlife for food and destroy habitat.

One recent sighting was near Britton in northeastern South Dakota in late October. Kyle Siebels and Cody Packard were helping a farmer harvest corn when a wild pig ran out of the corn. They killed it with four bullets from a deer rifle. Siebels tells the American News that the tusked boar was about 6 feet long and 3 feet tall.
