Rep. Ober has introduced HB 1075
which voids 312 IAC 9-3-18.6(a)(4) and requires its deletion from the Indiana Administrative Code.
Hence forth, an animal shall not be deemed a “wild hog” solely because it
Has skeletal characteristics indicative of a wild or Eurasian origin including:
(A) skull characteristics of an elongated snout or sloping appearance with little or no stop at the eye line;
(B) a shoulder structure with a steep or razorback (predominate ridge along the back) appearance;
(C) hindquarters proportionally smaller than the forequarters lacking natural muscling found in commercial species;
(D) visible tusks.
The section goes on to restrict the possession and sale of wild hogs as well as their importation into Indiana.
