For decades feral hogs have been expanding their range, creating ecological havoc wherever they show up. Efforts to reduce or eradicate them from the landscape have been largely unsuccessful. However, there is one state that seems to be having some success in the war against feral hogs — Missouri. In this episode, we’re talking with Alan Leary, the Wildlife Management Coordinator for the Missouri Department of Conservation who heads the state’s efforts to eradicate feral hogs. Alan discusses where feral hogs came from, how they’ve spread, and what he’s found that works and doesn’t work to reduce their numbers.
