Georgia neighbors flummoxed by wild pigs

Sept. 24, 2013 at 2:45 PM

LITHONIA, Ga., Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Residents of a Georgia neighborhood say local animal control workers told them there is nothing they can do about four wild hogs roaming about.

People living on Stonebridge Crescent in Lithonia said four of the animals were spotted Monday night and DeKalb County Animal Control officers told Taneisha Danner there was nothing they could do, WSB-TV, Atlanta, reported Tuesday.

"They don't handle that," Danner said. "They don't handle wildlife like that. They handle dogs and domesticated animals."

Danner said a member of her family, who recently moved to Georgia from New Jersey, was chased back into their home by one of the wild pigs.

"There's kids out here," she said. "Don't tell us that you can't do anything about this. I'm supposed to be a prisoner in my own house?"

DeKalb County police officer said they visited the subdivision Monday and contacted animal control again.
