Two pigs found roaming in the vicinity of Olmos Park

A pair of gray pigs were spotted roaming, scampering and snoozing on the manicured lawns of a North Side neighborhood on Tuesday early morning. 

The 40-pound swine were spotted just ahead of dawn on the 200 block of West Hermosa Push close to San Pedro Avenue and Olmos Park. 

Louis Cintron, who life in Oak Park Terrace, stated he initial found that the smaller cats on his back patio ended up absent. 

“They were being up in trees in essence,” Cintron said. “I really do not know what they considered of the pigs but they just did not want to interact with them.” 

At first he believed they were being puppies. Then he observed a pig trot down the road. He hopped in the jeep and attempted to track them down. The audio of pig squeals and barking pet dogs stuffed the early morning air.

“It startled some of our neighbors,” Cintron claimed. “The moment they listened to the pigs squeal, they came out and begun asking concerns.” 

San Antonio Animal Treatment Products and services arrived at all over 10 a.m. and at to start with, the officer could not discover the pigs, said spokeswoman Lisa Norwood. Just after looking around, a resident explained he noticed two of them laying on someone’s front lawn. 

Absolutely sure adequate, there “they have been, just lounging in the sun,” Norwood said. 

The two 40-pound pigs ended up taken into custody without having incident, Nordwood said. The pigs will keep on being at ACS until the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office sends a person to pick them up.

Norwood claimed swine of any type, such as pot-bellied pigs, are prohibited from currently being retained as pets in San Antonio. The duo captured on Tuesday look to be a genetic cross concerning a feral and domesticated pig, Norwood mentioned. 

That complicates what happens up coming to the grey pigs caught on Tuesday. Domesticated swine are taken to a sanctuary outdoors of Bexar County. Feral pigs are supplied to a regional trapper.
