Removal of Feral Swine

(1) HB 2221 (Oregon Laws 2009, Chapter 605) requires that a person who owns or controls land (or an employee of that person who acts as land manager) must notify the Department within 10 days of discovering feral swine on the land. Within 60 days after notification, the person or their land manager must submit a feral swine removal plan to the Department for approval. At minimum, the plan must include:

(a) Actions to be taken to remove all feral swine from the land (which may include, but are not limited to, hunting and trapping); and

(b) An expiration date for the proposed actions.

(2) Upon approval of the plan by the Department, the person or land manager must implement the plan.

(3) The Department may grant an extension of the expiration date of the feral swine removal plan.

(a) The request for an extension must be submitted to the Department by the person or land manager at least seven (7) days prior to the expiration date.

(b) The Department will determine the length of the extension on a case-by-case basis.
