Wild hogs are not considered a native species to Florida. They are extremely adaptable to different habitats and very clever, which can make them a challenge to remove from your property, especially if you live in an urban environment.
Wild hogs can carry various diseases such as pseudorabies and swine brucellosis. Pseudorabies can fatally affect livestock and pets, but is not transmittable to humans. Swine brucellosis is transmittable to humans and can cause flu like symptoms and even arthritis and meningitis. If infected, antibiotics are used to cure the disease in humans.
