House lawmakers in Vermont have approved a ban on wild boar, after state Fish and Wildlife officials said they are concerned the boar could escape from captive hunting facilities and attack other animals.

Vermont residents will get a chance to weigh in a new proposed rule to regulate public activities on land owned by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.

The proposal would allow hunting and fishing on more than 133,000 acres but prohibits snowmobiling, mountain biking and horseback riding except in designated corridors.

Officials say the proposal will give game wardens the authority to enforce the rule.

The Fish and Wildlife Board has given preliminary approval to the proposal in the first of three votes.
