Manitoba Pork - Wild Boar Information

There have been many sightings of wild pigs reported in Manitoba over the last decade, and we suspect the population is growing. Wild pigs are an invasive species that ruin wildlife habitat, put our native wildlife species at risk, damage cropland and pose a significant disease risk to farm-raised pigs. A total population estimate and accurate location information is not currently available.

To get a better understanding of the wild pig population in Manitoba, and to concentrate eradication efforts in the right areas, Manitoba Pork strongly encourages producers and the general public to report all sightings of wild pigs by phoning your local Manitoba Conservation and Climate office or by emailing wildlife@gov.mb.ca.
