ALL RESPONSES ARE CONFIDENTIAL
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT AND COOPERATION
We estimate that this survey will take 15 minutes of your time to complete. Your responses will tell us more about Wild Pigs in California and will be used to gain insights into attitudes regarding wild pigs and the geographic distribution of their damage. Wild pigs often have other names, including wild hog, feral pig, feral hog, wild boar, Russian boar, and Eurasian boar. All these names refer to the SAME animal. In this survey, we refer to these animals as Wild Pigs.
Wild Pigs are distributed across the United States, including in California. Although landowners and others in California may encounter Wild Pigs, we know little about the extent and type of damage they cause in our state, as well as the attitudes about their presence. Therefore, your help is critical to increase our understanding of how Wild Pigs affect landowners. The answers you provide will also help us develop more effective programs to deal with Wild Pigs.
Landowners with more than one property, please fill out one survey for each property. We will share our results with state and local officials to make them aware of the concerns people have about Wild Pigs. Individual responses will be kept strictly confidential. This survey is being conducted by researchers at the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE). For any questions about the survey please contact John Harper of Mendocino and Lake counties extension office at 890 N. Bush Street in Ukiah, telephone number (707) 463-4495, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether you have wild pigs on your property or not, your answers are important to us.
