SAN ANTONIO — A 270-pound wild boar was captured in a San Antonio family's backyard.
The big boar had been terrorizing the family and their pet pot belly pigs for weeks. So they called Ortiz Game Management to set up a hog trap.
Monday, the family woke up to see the boar chasing a deer that had gotten caught in the trap. The experts then came in to get the hog.
Feral hogs are known to damage property in Texas neighborhoods. But last month, a woman was killed by a pack of feral hogs in southeast Texas.
The USDA says 2.6 million feral hogs live in the Lone Star State.
