Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Kills 15 Feral Pigs in Harlan County

LINCOLN, Neb. – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission removed 15 feral pigs from Harlan County Reservoir Feb. 24 and 25 to keep them from becoming a threat to domestic and wild animals, crops and wildlife habitat, according to Sam Wilson, the Commission’s nongame mammal and furbearer specialist.

“We believe the hunt was very successful and this year’s lower number (of feral pigs killed) is a good indication of how successful we were last year,” Wilson said. In 2008, a total of 69 feral pigs were killed in the Harlan County Reservoir area.

Wilson said the pigs will be tested for disease – pseudorabies, swine brucellosis and classical swine fever. “The test results will be available in a few weeks,” he said.

“We are very interested in receiving reports from turkey hunters and others of any observations of wild pigs or their sign,” Wilson said. He said observations should be reported to him at (402) 471-5174.
