WS National Wildlife Disease Program Activities Related to Feral Swine
The WS’ National Wildlife Disease Program conducts disease surveillance, management, response, education and outreach related to feral swine. Since 2004, the Program has implemented disease monitoring activities for swine brucellosis and pseudorabies and has conducted surveillance for classical swine fever across the nation. Recently, toxoplasmosis and trichinosis monitoring has been initiated, and a foot-and-mouth disease and African swine fever project has been started.
