Terrestrial Invasive Species - Vertebrates

Report a species

DNR is seeking sighting information for invasive species in Indiana. If you believe you have spotted an invasive species, report it and, if possible, get pictures to assist in expert identification.


Feral hogs, also known as wild pigs, are regulated under 312 IAC 9-3-18.6. This rule makes it illegal to import, possess, sell, transport, barter, trade, or release wild pigs in Indiana. Mute swans are regulated under 312 IAC 9-4-2.5. Individuals may not possess or sell mute swans unless they are pinioned before six weeks of age, making them incapable of flight. They are not to be released into the wild and must be held in an enclosure that prevents their escape into the wild.
