                United States Department of Agriculture, Wildlife Services – NH is reaching out to towns in New Hampshire in hopes that we can distribute information about feral swine damage and management.  Wildlife Services provides partnership-based Federal leadership to help resolve human-wildlife conflicts through an integrated wildlife damage management approach.  Wildlife Services supports the National Wildlife Disease Program’s feral swine disease surveillance and monitoring efforts through biological sampling of swine and population monitoring.

                For the past ten years NH Wildlife Services has assisted with the removal and management of an emergent population of feral swine in NH.  However, even a small population of feral swine cause damage to pastures, lawns, and crops as well as affect native animal and plant communities.  Feral swine are an invasive species in the U.S. that cause billions of dollars in agricultural damage annually.  Feral swine can be host to as many as thirty different pathogens and thirty-seven different parasites which are a significant disease threat to pets, livestock, wildlife, and humans,  They also out-compete native wildlife for food, and may prey upon amphibians, reptiles, wild turkeys, deer fawns, grouse, and other ground nesting birds and their eggs.

                Here in NH, we rely heavily on public input and cooperation to locate feral swine and gain access to properties for surveillance and sampling efforts.  Public outreach and education play a key role in our success.  Your participation will greatly aid in this effort to eliminate feral swine in NH.  We have produced and informational poster which has been distributed to many stores throughout the state as well as NH Wildlife Management Areas.  Our hope is to get this poster (or other information regarding feral swine) out on your town website and/or Facebook page to expand our outreach and increase reporting of swine sightings and their activity.

Under Governor John Wentworth, a Charter was granted February 8, 1772 to Sir Thomas Wentworth and others for a tract of land called Bretton-Woods, derived from the estate of the Wentworth Family in England called Bretton Hall.

By June 1830, the population was 150 people but was unincorporated having no representation in the legislature.  The residents petitioned the legislature to become a Town named Haven (apparently to honor Alfred W. Haven, Justice of the Peace of Bretton Woods.)

As of May 1831, the legislature had not acted upon the petition of Bretton-Woods to incorporate as a town.  Some of the original petitioners changed their minds and wanted to withdraw the petition.  The legislature ignored the petition and passed an Act signed into law on June 22, 1832 incorporating the Town of Carroll.

Charles Carroll of Maryland was a distinguished American of wide reputation and one of the signers of the Delcaration of Independence.  Thus, the Town of Carroll was incorporated which included the villages of Crawford's, Bretton Woods, Fabyans and Twin Mountain.
