When Hogs Attack! Feral Hogs Dig Up Neighborhood

Feral hogs are digging up the lawns and flowerbeds in Elizabeth City, and it's not the first time.

The target of the feral hogs' affection: Rosedale Drive. Neighbors say the hogs have hit the neighborhood twice in the past five months, digging up their lawns and flowerbeds with the force of a tractor. Neighbors say they're extremely upset and in some cases the hogs could be causing thousands of dollars in damage.

Police Chief Charles Crudup says officers shot and killed 12 hogs last year, which seemed to scare the rest away, but they've started returning.

Neighbors think they're coming from Camden County and that they're attracted to the almond trees on the street.
