Now that's something you don't see every day. Do we need to hire some boar hunters from Texas?

I'm going to see if anyone has seen Dan LaBelly. I hope that wasn't him the cops shot, mistaking him for a wild boar.

I would hunt them for free if the city let me. I could do it with a bow so there would be no stray bullets.

200-250 pounds (way bigger than a German shepherd) is quite a pig. What does it take to bring one down? Did the officers use pistols or heavier arms?

The somalians bring these animals here as pups then when they grow & cant fit in the apt they cant handle these suckers so they turn em loose & hope the Pakistanis or Burmese will find it & kill it for food

As I heard it today the rest of the story goes like this: That was not a true feral boar. It belonged to a local that has two of them and had them in captivity for a while. This one got out a few days ago. The cops shot it and then took a pic with it. That pic was sent off to said cops friend who was coincidentally related to the Boars owner! Lets see if this story gets told and the pic gets released. Just sayin'. This would indicate there is NOT an influx of these creatures as the news is currently reporting. Perhaps the owner will come forward.

Stop letting your mother roam free and your sister won't have to take her down.

Really? Is that why certain states have all year hunting permitted on them? These animals are known to be extremely vicious and rapidly reproduce they are a huge problem for farmers down south because they run in packs and often attack livestock and humans I think u need to do a little more research or stop reading the PETA forums

So what some of you are saying they should of not shot it and just let it wander and kill someone's dog or pet? Or maybe rummage your trash it dig up lawns? Get real it needed to be shot and it was a male boar and would of kept breading . How many more are around here you PETA losers.
