Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
Feral swine and wild boar have been declared invasive species in Michigan, effective Jul 8, 2011.

If legislation is not passed to regulate the facilities, the invasive species order will go in to effect, making it illegal to possess wild boar in Michigan. Feral swine have been sighted in nearly every county in Michigan. For information about the feral swine issue, please go to the DNRE Feral Swine site.
