San Jose allows trapping, shooting of wild pigs

SAN JOSE, Calif.

A herd of more than a dozen non-native pigs have torn up lawns and ripped apart the greens at the Almaden Golf and Country Club. Previously, the city rules banned shooting a gun inside the city's border, except by police and people at firing ranges.

People who have seen the damage the pigs made told us they're ready to get rid of them by any means necessary. Longtime residents said the pigs are turning aggressive and threatening.

Only state-licensed trappers will be allowed to capture the pigs and shoot them.
