White Buffalo, the conservation-focused nonprofit led by Tony and Vickie DeNicola, developed the Pig Brig Trap System (watch the video).
The trap came about during a feral hog eradication in Guam. Our biologists couldn’t dig, place any metal objects into the ground, or do anything that disrupted the soil due to unexploded WWII ordnance. So, they began hanging nets from trees with remotely triggered gates and realized it was easier to get the pigs to go under the net than through the gate – thanks to the pigs’ rooting behavior (watch the video). Since then, we’ve upgraded and modified the original Pig Brig Trap with an advanced patented design.
