Pig On The Loose Wreaks Havoc On Florida Neighborhood

An unruly pig is creating havoc in Clermont, Florida. 

Residents say the porker has been seen digging up gardens and trashing their yards.

The animal appears to be a domesticated, potbellied pig rather than a wild boar. Authorities say animal control officials told them that, since the pig is apparently a domesticated breed, it is likely an escaped or released pet rather than a wild animal.

The pig problem in Clermont is of a different sort than the one in the neighborhoods in nearby Orlando. 

Avalon Park neighbors say a family of boars has been wandering in from a neighboring reserve and causing yard damage similar to Clermont's potbellied pig, but the more brazen wild animals have also been invading homes.
