This event will be a valuable opportunity for Wildlife and Land Managers to share their experiences and knowledge on a variety of control methods, and discuss the Best Practice recommendations of managing the feral pig population in Scotland.

During the day, you’ll hear from individuals and organisations already controlling feral pigs, providing an opportunity for all in attendance to discuss effective management strategies for a variety of differing land interests.

    • Legalities & Best Practice Guidance
    • Monitoring & Reporting
    • Methods of Control & Equipment
    • Habitat Damage
    • Corral Trap Design & Siting
    • Dispatching & Carcass Handling

This is an outdoor event and will include site visits to the FLS Larder and into local forestry to view habitat damage and a corral trap (currently in use).
This will be the first of a number of Feral Pig focused events this year.
