Officers, resident shoot boar, sow; authorities not sure they were feral pigs


Police and a Medora resident killed two hogs running through the town.

The animals were originally  thought to have been feral or wild hogs, but state officials aren’t so sure.

Wild hogs have been a common sight in wooded areas of Carr Township the past seven or eight years, but Monday’s report would be the first time the animals have been seen inside Medora town limits, Jackson County Sheriff Michael Carothers said.
