The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) continues the fight against invasive feral hogs in Missouri. In its Southeast Region, MDC and public- land partners have eradicated 165 hogs from Southeast Missouri (SEMO) public lands in Reynolds, Iron, Wayne, Stoddard and Pemiscot counties. An additional six hogs were reported taken by private landowners.
“We’ve had a large eradication effort which began early this year,” said MDC Wildlife Management Biologist Mark McLain.
