Provides the following services: Pig Trapping
Primary Goal: SAFETY
Secondary Goal: Exceed the expectations of the property owner for pig removal.
Third Goal: All Federal laws, State Fish and Wildlife regulations and local laws and homeowner rules are followed.
1. The placement of a box or corral trap with the intent of capturing wild/feral pigs.
a. All materials for construction of the selected trap. The trap will be determined by; property owners goals, site inspection, size of the sounder (group of pigs) and physical limitations such as; existing fencing, trees, uneven ground which could allow the trapped pigs to escape if the trap site surface was uneven.
b. Baiting will be for 2-4 weeks depending on the contract goals and the wild pigs reaction to the trap placement. Baiting will begin immediately upon securing permits, if necessary at the trap site. The bait should draw the feral pigs to the trap site reducing property damage; the bait should lower the pigs stress and weariness because the trap will be new and foreign and perceived as a threat.
c. A depredation permit can only be obtained by the property owner or manager. Wild Pig Removal Inc service provider "Tim Gall" must be listed as the property owner's agent, state law, to allow the agent to preform the services under the guidelines of the permit. The depredation permit allows for additional methods of take to be used such as; baiting, artificial lights to be used when eradication is being conducted at night.
Note: The City of San Jose city ordinance requires the homeowner to obtain a California Dept Fish & Wildlife depredation permit prior to any pig trapping within city limits.
d. State law requires that the trap be inspected daily. Wild Pig Removal Inc. requires the trap to be inspected twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening and the homeowner or contact person will report their observations to Tim Gall at; cell 408-460-0327, or text to the same number or email email@example.com. The observation can be preformed from any safe distance, which provides a clear view of the entire enclosure. If there is an animal inside the trap Tim Gall will be notified as soon as possible by phone at the listed phone number. Deer will have the ability to jump out of the trap unharmed. If the gate for the trap has been activated Tim Gall must be notified so the trap can be reset. If no animal is captured but the guillotine / gate door has been sprung the homeowner has the option of resetting the trap or calling Wild Pig Removal Inc.
