Trappers catch wild hog that was terrorizing DeKalb County neighborhood

LITHONIA, GA (CBS46) -

Trappers have captured and killed a wild hog that was terrorizing a DeKalb County neighborhood.

Wednesday morning a homeowner used their cell phone to record video of a hog eating dog food left in the front yard of a home.

Tavares Dennis and his buddies went hog hunting Wednesday.

"What we are trying to do is get the hogs rounded up in one area because they are spread out. If we can get them in a concentrated area we can bring the dogs in and we can catch the hogs," said Dennis.

Dennis said he has just the right bait.

"Right now we are going to mix a component of molasses, dog food and corn. We are going to dig holes so they can root up and get them saturated in one area and then we can release the dogs and our dogs won't be all over the neighborhood," Dennis said.

Homeowners said the hogs have been terrorizing the area for weeks, going through people's trash and even charging kids. CBS Atlanta was there Wednesday when one of the animals showed up.

"Don't approach the hogs. If you see them report them, don't feed them or do anything of that nature," Dennis said.
