HogDamage_Page-05

CLEMSON — A survey designed by Clemson University researchers to begin to quantify the economic and ecological damage caused by feral hogs will soon start showing up in the mailboxes of many South Carolina farmers and rural landowners.

The survey data will help inform a feral hog-management strategy that will be imparted to landowners across the Southeast through a future series of workshops and outreach efforts.

Past studies indicate that feral hogs cause an estimated $1.2 billion per year of economic damage in the U.S., but there is no data on the damage they are causing in South Carolina.

By filling out and returning the survey, participants can help wildlife management professionals with efforts to control an invasive species that is damaging the state’s natural resources and agricultural infrastructure, said Shari Rodriguez, a Clemson wildlife biologist specializing in wildlife conservation on private lands.
