State conservation officials in the state of Alabama are concerned for feral hog hunters and the possibility that hog hunters may contract swine brucellosis while field dressing their kills.

Swine brucellosis is an infectious disease found mostly in the Southeastern part of the nation. Humans can get the disease by handling infected tissue, which might come in contact with small cuts or lesions while field dressing.

Be sure to wear gloves and wash hands with soap and hot water as soon as you can after field dressing.
