Action3News said that the Pigs were collected from the reserve on 23 February 2008 and were tested for several diseases. Only one tested positive for swine influenza.

Last year, a feral hog killed near Genoa tested positive for pseudorabies and pigs killed in Harlan County tested positive for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome. Commission official Sam Wilson said infected hogs can threaten Nebraska's farm economy.
