Squeal On Pigs: Wild Boar Mitigation

Feral pigs, also known as wild boar at large, are one of the most damaging invasive species in North America. Hunting is not an effective control option, and we kindly ask that you don't try to approach them or let dogs chase them.

You can report signs or sightings of feral pigs on your property by contacting the County's Agricultural Services department at 780.785.3411 (toll-free 1.866.880.5722) or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Humane Management of Invasive Animal Populations

The County aims to maintain healthy populations of wildlife while controlling those species known to cause disturbance for residents. Controlling animal populations does not always mean "to destroy" but may include trapping and relocating as well. We will not participate in any unnecessary reduction in populations of wildlife, only in the control of these animals to amounts that are agreeable with the land's carrying capacity and the tolerance of the producer.
