Feral swine are not classed as a protected species of "wildlife" under Pennsylvania's Game Code. They have no license requirements or season. As feral swine populations grow in PA, rural farmers need to be aware of human and animal health issues as well as crop, field and environmental damage as a result of localized populations. Reporting of sightings of feral swing to the Department of Agriculture and PA Game Commission are recommended.
