A Secretary of Environment, Infrastructure and Logistics of São Paulo (Semil) states that wild boar hunting is prohibited throughout the state of São Paulo, according to State Law No. 16,784, of June 28, 2018 — even though it is allowed by IBAMA. As a result, only wild boar population control is currently allowed through pursuit, capture and direct disposal of specimens.

According to Ibama itself, wild boars are a major problem for the environment and for agriculture, as the animal constantly accounts for several losses in crops attacked by the animals. In all, the agency estimates that they are present in at least 650 municipalities in 12 Brazilian states.

However, this decision goes against the requests of representatives of the productive sector of the state of São Paulo. “The initiative makes it impossible to control the wild boar population, a wild pig species considered invasive in Brazil, responsible for a great environmental imbalance and transmitter of foot-and-mouth disease”inform the Brazilian Rural Society (SRB), in a note.

In the State of São Paulo, if the rural producer (or any person) wants to become a controller of the wild boar population, he must contact the Superintendence of Ibama.
