A project that investigates current options for managing feral pigs in Australia and assesses the need for the development of more effective and humane techniques and strategies – Stage 3 Report.

This Stage 3 report reviews the humaneness of the feral pig control options identified in stage 1.

Feral pig control is ethically justified due to the impacts of feral pigs on conservation, agriculture, human welfare and animal welfare. The peak animal welfare body, the RSPCA recognises that feral animals may need to be reduced or eliminated in certain situations but states that the methods used should be humane.
