I hear they like apples. Make sure baiting them is Legal.

It is here and we usually catch them in traps in the colder months and sell them live but we don't in the summer BC it gets 110°+ here and tithe die of heat without soonly available water so I stick to shooting and I have tried some soured horse feed with strawberry jello powder mixed in and had no luck

They used to raid the heck out of the cattle feeders when we had cattle.

Bolt,

CORN! CORN! CORN!
That is if it is legal where you live.
We hunt Texas a lot and God Bless Texas!

Also you can make a PIG TOY! Yep that is what I said!

Get a 5 ft piece of 6" PVC Pipe that is threaded on one end either internal or external thread.
Drill 5/8 or slightly larger holes about 30 to 40 of them all over the length of the 5 ft. pipe. Then use pipe glue and put a solid cap over end #1.
On end #2 that will be your filler end to put corn in. So it must be threaded on the inside or outside to put a filler cap on it. You will take the Threaded filler cap and drill a hole in it so you can attach an Eye Bolt to the lid. The Eye Bolt *Must Be Free to Turn in the Threaded Cap. You attach the Eye Bolt in the Cap to a cable that you can get from your local hardware. *Must be a steel cable! Then you attache the other end of the steel cable to a T-Post that has been hammered into the ground securely. You fill the PVC Tube with Corn and screw on the filler cap. Then stretch the cable and PVC Tube out away from the T-Post as far as it will reach. When the pigs come they will roll the PVC Pipe around on the ground to get the Corn to fall out of the holes in the tube! They will first of all make noise while doing this and they will return to the area to eat corn. Also they will have to work hard to get the corn so they usually stay quit a while!
There you go! A PIG TOY! Oh did I mention BOOOOOOM!?
Sausage on the Grill!
