African Warthog Found Wandering Through Florida Neighborhood
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — African warthogs, not surprisingly, are not native to Florida so state wildlife officials are investigating how one ended up loose in a suburban neighborhood. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation officials told TCPalm.com that it captured the tusky animal last month after a five-day search about 50 miles north of West Palm Beach. That included failed attempts to capture it with traps and a rope snare before a wildlife officer spotted it and tackled it. The newspaper reports the officer got some cuts on his legs in the process.
