PINELLAS PARK, Fla. – Tampa-area authorities shot and killed a wild boar spotted near an outdoor church festival.
Pinellas Park police found the 200-pound animal shortly after it was reported Sunday evening. The animal couldn't be caged, and seemed immune to police Tasers.
The boar did not disrupt Sacred Heart Catholic Church's annual fall festival.
It was the second time in six months Pinellas County police have been called to handle a wild pig. In April, a 200-pound female hog attacked a woman and charged a St. Petersburg police officer before it was captured. That pig was killed by lethal injection.
