About Ossabaw Island Pigs
Ossabaw Island hog, or Ossabaw Island pigs, is a breed of pig derived
from a population of feral pigs on Ossabaw Island, Georgia, United States. The
original Ossabaw hogs are descended from swine released on the island in the
16th century by Spanish explorers. A breeding population has been established
on American farms off the island, but they remain a critically endangered
variety of pig.
