Plum Creek Watershed Feral Hog Project
As in many areas across the Texas landscape and elsewhere in the nation, feral hog numbers appear to be increasing in the Plum Creek Watershed. These animals damage crops, livestock, pets, landscaping, and natural habitat in rural and urban areas alike.
Feral hogs also have the potential to contribute to water pollution. Due to their numbers, distribution, and behavior, feral hogs can increase the levels of sediment, nutrients, and bacteria in streams and lakes. Habitat analysis and landowner observations indicate this is the case in the Plum Creek Watershed. In some situations, water quality may become so degraded that it cannot support recreation or aquatic life.
The Texas AgriLife Extension Service is cooperating with the Plum Creek Watershed Partnership to address this growing local issue. Working to provide information and assistance to watershed landowners, we may reduce the effects of feral hog activity.
