The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) invites you to watch the new video series Feral Swine in America, which chronicles the impacts of feral swine damage on American livelihoods and ecosystems through personal stories. Listen to farmers, ranchers, land managers, conservationists, and others as they describe their experiences dealing with feral swine damage to agriculture and natural resources.
“We wanted to highlight how diverse and widespread feral swine damage can be. So, we reached out to ordinary people in Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas to share their personal stories,” stated Dr. Dale Nolte, national manager of the APHIS National Feral Swine Damage Management Program. The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) partnered with MODOC Stories to create the video series.
To date, the series includes three short videos ranging in topics from feral swine damage to farms, ranches, and levee systems to archaeological sites, native wildlife, and natural resources. To view the free videos, please visit APHIS’ Feral Swine in America YouTube site.
