LITHONIA, Ga. -- Taneisha Danner says four wild hogs are roaming the streets of her Lithonia neighborhood.  She calls one of them "the big one".  It's as tall as a man's waist and estimated to weigh 250 pounds.  When her son tried to scare it off their front lawn, it started to charge him before he ran inside.

She called DeKalb County Animal control, but they said they don't have the resources to catch the hogs.  The Department of Natural Resources considers the hogs "feral domesticated animals", and won't trap them.  Instead, a private trapper has offered to catch the hogs and release them in a more appropriate habitat.
