Fayette County, like many other areas in Alabama, is under attack from an explosive population of feral hogs. The Extension Office, in partnership with the Soil and Water Conservation District and Tombigbee RC&D, held a feral hog program in 2011 and will hold another program on June 16, 2015. Experts on feral hogs provide education and training on control methods and prevention of hog populations. Hog trap gates are given away at these events. Participants use the gates to build traps on their property and participate in follow-up surveys on the program.
