on Oahu, charging people and pets! Good evening, I'm Kenny Choi. And I'm Yunji de Nies...at this hour, the pig is still out there. And once you see this video, you'll see why it has some worries. KITV4's Brenton Awa has our top story tonight. This wild pig rammed into a chain linked fence and got stuck...all caught on camera, after getting lost in this Aina Haina neighborhood. While residents say they haven't seen a pig this big before -- they regularly see the animals roaming the area. 833 - 844 "I GUESS WHEN THEY'RE HUNGRY, THERE'S NO FOOD, THEY COME DOWN THE STREAM. IN THE BACK OF OUR HOUSE THERE'S A STREAM THERE AND I GUESS THEY KIND OF WANDER DOWN AND COME OUT AND WE'VE SEEN THEM COME OUT INTO THE YARD AREA." The resident who shot this video says he called the DLNR for help but it's staff is on Moloka'i -- ironically for a conference dealing with feral pigs... The DLNR referred the resident to the Oahu Pig Hunters Association. Other neighbors say that's the right place to call to get pigs removed. 944 "MY WIFE HAS ACTUALLY SEEN THEM, THEY WRAP AROUND, I GUESS THEY SHOT THEM WITH THEIR BOW AND ARROW AND THEY CARRY THEM ON THEIR BACK AND THEY WALK OUT OF HERE." This pig got itself in a jam at this house on Alamuku Street -- just behind the Wailupe Elementary School. The resident here tells us the pig went after his dog but eventually freed itself and got away. In the meantime -- those who live here say they'll just keep their distance if they see the pig... But aren't all that worried. 1043 "IT'S COMMON PLACE I MEAN NOBODY PANICS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, WE'VE SEEN IT, MOST OF THE NEIGHBORS HAVE ALL SEEN IT." The pig in that video was probably about 4-5 feet long -- 150 or so pounds... The DLNR says if a wild pig gets on your property and you're not a hunter -- it's best to call the Oahu Pig Hunters Association to help get rid of the animal.
