The Alberta Government will be extending its Wild Boar at Large Ear Bounty Program for three months until June 30, 2017 for participating municipalities, including Lac Ste. Anne County. During this three-month period, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry will be evaluating the wild boar at large bounty program, looking at how it aligns with other eradication efforts and working with the participating municipalities on future programming.
Ears Accepted Until June 30
With the extension of the Alberta Government-subsidized Wild Boar Eradication Program, the Agricultural Services department will continue accept boar ears at the County office. Under this program, individuals will receive $50 per pair of wild boar ears.
The Wild Boar Eradication Program was introduced by the Alberta Government in 2013 as a measure to reduce and control the population of wild boars predominantly in the Lac Ste. Anne County region.
