Pigs in the City


Friday, Nov. 18

When visitors return from a walk in the wetland, they often ask, “Were those pigs we saw?” Yes, pigs and pig damage.

Sam Kieschnick, an urban biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife, tells us where they came from, what makes them a problem and what you can do if they show up on your property.
