Texas researchers look to warfarin-based toxicant to slow feral hog numbers

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service may have found a way to control feral hogs.

Researchers are studying a warfarin-based toxicant that could serve as an effective option for landowners and farmers to slow feral hog numbers. The two-year study took place on 23 sites across ten counties.

Each year in Texas alone, three million feral hods cause more than $500 million dollars in damage to agriculture and private property.
