In spite of its relatively long history, the regulatory approach to feral pig management adopted by Australia has not been successful. Our first objective in this paper is to analyse the Australian regulatory approach to feral pig management. This is to determine how it addresses the issues of conflict, uncertainty, risk and complexity which characterize feral pig management and to identify the reasons for its lack of success. Our second objective is to point out some of the implications of this analysis for the management of feral pig populations in countries where feral pig issues are comparable to Australia’s.
