State officials are hoping they can come up with best practices for driving away feral hogs. Two pilot programs start this month with the goal of getting landowners and state and federal agencies working together to trap and remove feral hogs. Agriculture Secretary Blayne Arthur said the problem is so bad here, a federal grant is helping fund Oklahoma’s work.
“Oklahoma is actually an F-4 state in regard to feral hogs, which is kind of similar to a tornado, that’s the worst level that we can be at nationally, unfortunately. And so, that’s why those federal dollars are coming here,” Arthur said.
