SA Hunters introduced an online permit system for the legal transport of wild pig meat or carcasses.
It is a convenient, cost-saving process that allows landowners to register their properties om the system which enables them to issue transport permits to hunters. It also facilitates the reporting of issued permits to the Directorate Animal Health.
SA Hunters concluded intensive discussions with the Directorate Animal Health of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to be recognised as an industry organisation whose members may issue permits for the transport of processed wild pig carcasses and meat. This permission was granted in terms of Regulation 20 of the Animal Diseases Act, No 35 van 1984 Electronic Issuing of Permits and Registration of Farms
