Title Managing Wild Pigs: A Technical Guide. Human Wildlife Interactions Monograph Number 1.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 60p
Personal Author A. L. Cooper B. C. West J. B. Armstrong
Abstract This manual was written to help people, especially natural resource professionals, who are interested in managing wild pigs (Sus scrofa). However, we expect that it will be read by a wide variety of people, including wildlife biologists, land managers, farmers, hunters, policymakers, academicians, and others. Given this diversity of readership, developing this guide was a balancing act between offering detailed information supported by the scientific literature on the one hand and summarizing as simply as possible what is known about wild pigs and their management on the other. In the end, we are hopeful that the publication is detailed enough to be useful to those with a deep interest in wild pigs but also succinct enough for those simply interested in a comprehensive management resource.
