Dogs and hunters slay wild hog in Lithonia neighborhood
By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) Tracking dogs managed to chase down and attack a 400-pound wild hog that has been scaring children and adults in a Dekalb County neighborhood this week.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that after the dogs attacked, a hunter stabbed it to death Thursday night in the neighborhood near Lithonia. The subdivision is about 17 miles east of downtown Atlanta.
Authorities have said as many as four feral hogs have been roaming the DeKalb County neighborhood for several days.
The south Georgia hunters who killed the animal said the hog probably is the only one in the area, but neighbors said they have seen more than one.
An exterminating firm has been hired to search for remaining pigs in the area.
