SAMS 1.1.1- The goal is to assess damages caused by feral swine to agricultural crops relative to population control efforts by WS Operations. Analysis of current data, writing of reports, and field studies will be conducted in support of this objective. Feral swine ecology and behavior will be studied to optimize the effectiveness and safety of strategies for management of feral swine. Agricultural and Natural ecosystems will be evaluated for signs of damage by feral swine relative to differing limes of the year and differing levels of population control. NWRC and TAM UK will work cooperatively to conduct a series of studies to achieve agreement goals. Much of the work will be conducted in cooperation with WS Operations. Studies on damages by feral swine will be conducted to answer specific questions about the extent of damage during different times of year, and how well population control programs can reduce the damages
