With the wild boar population on the rise in Alberta, Canada, provincial officials have been taking a different approach to controlling the numbers.

Perry Abramenko, an inspector with the Alberta Agriculture and Forestry department, said there had been reports of the wild boar population expanding and more are being seen, the Calgary Herald reported.

The boars that are caught are humanely put down and tested for any disease or parasites. As of now, the new measure has caught 18 boars.

Boars are not native to Canada. They were brought to the country in the 1980s to be hunted for sport, but in 2008 they were officially labeled as a pest.
