Feral pigs tear up Edgewater neighborhood

Homes near the Unity Tree Drive in Edgewater now have big pieces of lawn missing, torn up, and muddy. Wild pigs have been doing some major damage.

Brandon Carlin came face-to-face with some of the wild pigs as he was taking his twin toddlers to a babysitter's house early in the morning.

"I saw four small black pigs just running down the road and I get home from work, and my yard looked like that!" he said, pointing to huge mounds of dirt in his yard.  

There are wooded areas nearby where the hogs call home, but they've been leaving that home and searching for food in families' well manicured lawns.

The City of Edgewater is now getting involved. They hired a trapper to put traps in the area.
