    Brucellosis is a bacterial disease that can spread to humans after contact with infected hog’s blood, body fluids, or tissues (such as meat, testicles, liver, and other organs). Infections can cause fever, headaches, chills, weight loss, and joint/muscle pain. If the illness is not diagnosed and treated quickly, you could have serious problems in your bones, joints, or heart.

    If you get sick with a flu-like illness within 1 week to 6 months after contact with feral swine, tell your doctor about your hunt. Testing and treatment for brucellosis are available!
