Wild Boar causes scare at Brownfield High School

KLBK News
A feral hog on the loose caused some commotion at Brownfield High School after it was running around on campus. 
 
“These hogs can be aggressive and cause injuries to those trying to relocate them. There have been several injuries in the past that have either ended up hurting or killing people, not right here in Brownfield but cases around the state,” Zach Nettle, a Brownfield school resource officer, said. 
 
The pig was being chased by a neighbor when it wandered onto campus. Both Brownfield Police and Brownfield Animal Control responded to the situation. 
 
The boar was chased off campus and into a neighboring home’s backyard. The the boar was shot three times on the neighboring property before it died. 
 
Below is a statement released by Brownfield ISD:
