Pig

With coarse hair and solid build, the feral pig is one of Australia’s most destructive environmental and agricultural pests.

European settlers introduced the pig for food. Often allowed to roam free, it was not long before this animal had established populations in the wild.

The feral pig is now found in every state of Australia except Tasmania, causing widespread damage to natural ecosystems.
