BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – They’re hungry, they’re aggressive, the big bad wolf wouldn’t scare these pigs. Still, folks in Brevard County have reason to be scared of them.
Police are calling on professional trappers to wrangle up the wild pigs before someone gets hurt. The reason they’re out in force is simple: the pigs are filling their bellies with acorns.
“This time of year, with the weather changes and the rainy weather, they’re basically coming out and feeding and gorging themselves to get them fat for the winter,” explained James Dean, a certified trapper based in Melbourne.
Dean says a 400 pound pig was recently on a tear near the intersection of Minton and Malabar in Palm Bay.
