Trapping has been relatively successful, although experts warn that unless an entire group-known as a "sounder"-is captured at the same time, any escapees will learn from the experience and likely avoid getting tricked again. Saskatchewan has enjoyed some success by radio-collaring a trapped pig and releasing it, letting it lead them to an entire sounder. They then shoot the group from a helicopter. Such government control methods are expensive, however, and with budgets being slashed, more economical methods are being looked at-including the use of hunters.
