Experiments were conducted which examined the toxicity and acceptability of warfarin and 1080 poison to penned feral pigs. Warfarin was very toxic and highly acceptable. Maximum mortality was 11 of 12 at 0.08% concentration for 2 or 3 days, or 0.1% concentration for 2 days. 1080 toxicity was 2 of 19 at 0.05% for 1 day. Bait intake declined significantly when bait was poisoned with 1080. The results and their implications are discussed.
