Feral pigs in the Somerset can be caught in a council trap

Somerset Regional Council has bought a feral pig trap and trailer to help landholders reduce the impact of the wild pest.

The portable panel trap can be constructed into one large trap of about 35 square metres or two smaller traps depending on the site requirements.

Landholders who want to use the trap must be an owner of land in Somerset and have reported a sighting or impacts of feral pigs to the council.

Property owners who would like to use the trap which was purchased through the SEQ Drought Assistance Feral Animal Management Project can book it with the council on 5424 4000.
