Federal agencies plan for winter feral hog eradication at LBL

Feral hogs have become a big issue in Land Between the Lakes over the past few years. They are considered an invasive species, much like Asian carp, because of their lack of predators, high reproduction rates and amount of destruction caused when feeding and nesting. The hogs also have been known to carry a number of diseases, along with many types of parasites that pose threats to humans, pets, livestock and other wildlife in the area. Today, a group of government agencies will announce a campaign to eradicate feral hogs at LBL using aerial operations in addition to bait trapping.
