Feral Hogs

The Georgia Department of Agriculture has new rules regarding the transportation and holding of live feral hogs. These rules will be effective January 1, 2019. Feral hog holding facilities will require a Feral Hog Facility License and anyone transporting live feral hogs will require a Feral Hog Transport Permit. Feral Hog Holding Facilities will require a pre-license inspection and, upon compliance, a license will be issued. Pre-license inspections will begin upon receipt of application. Starting January 1, 2019, Feral Hog Holding Facilities will be granted a 90-day grace period to come into compliance with the new rules.
