The County of Wetaskiwin does not have any regulations around farming wild boar or prohibiting them. The Government of Alberta has fencing regulations for wild boar but that is the only form of rules or regulations regarding wild boar. County Council is seeking public input on wild boar. Please complete this survey to provide your opinion on wild boar. The survey will be available online until February 22, 2021.
