The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will host an online public meeting Tuesday, November 14th from 6:30 – 8 p.m. to go over action plans for dealing with feral pigs and released mink if an issue did arise. Minnesota DNR Wildlife Populations and Regulations Manager Leslie McInenly says the meeting is a way of gathering feedback for a report due to the state legislature in February. If feral hogs were to end in the state several state departments would need to work together. “That’s when there’s some authorities for the Department of Natural Resources or Department of Ag to make sure they don’t remain out there on the landscape and pose a risk to both the natural resources and agriculture community.” If you would like to provide input but aren’t able to attend, there are other ways to give feedback at the MN DNR website.
