Hunters in Louisiana should be aware that feral hogs carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans. The following precautions should be used when processing feral hogs.

  • Always wear rubber gloves (shoulder length is advised).
  • Wear glasses, goggles, or a face shield.
  • Avoid direct contact (bare skin) with fluid or organs from the hog.
  • Never eat, drink, or use tobacco products while processing feral hogs.
  • Always clean tools used in processing with a bleach solution or other disinfectant.
  • Always cook wild pork to at least 160˚F before consuming.
