Feral Pigs in Alyth

A number of feral pigs, which escaped from a nearby Perthshire estate, are living on Alyth Hill. Action is being taken to control and remove these animals.  On the 17th November Scottish Natural Heritage held a meeting at Alyth Town Hall to discuss the emerging issue.

The aim of the meeting was to gain a better understanding of the distribution of feral pigs in the area, share current knowledge, views and concerns and determine if there was any interest or scope for a co-ordinated approach to managing the feral pig population which have been causing damage in the area. 


Several land managers indicated an intention to continue to control in the area, indicating they would be willing to coordinate their efforts with others with a future ambition to establish a land management forum.  If you would like to find out more information on this or indeed report feral sightings for the Alyth area please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
