Toxic baiting of wild pigs is a potential new tool for population control and damage reduction in the United States. But the use of toxic bait sites by non‐target species is concerning because of the risks posed from exposure to a toxic bait. In a study in the March issue of the Wildlife Society Bulletin, researchers considered strategies to reduce the risk of non-target species ingesting HOGGONE, a prototype sodium nitrite toxic bait that has been more hazardous than expected to non-target species.
Other articles include using drones to count white-tailed deer, attitudes of social media users toward mountain lions and the influence of trap and mesh size on turtle captures.
