Wild Boar Blamed for Golf Course Damage
Less than a month after rabid coyotes attacked several people in a Cleveland MetroPark, Dayton’s WDTN.com reported further proof last week that concealed carry in parks is a necessary defense against (two AND four-legged) predators:
From the story:
- Monday we told you about bobcat sightings in Germantown. It's a different story in Preble and Butler counties though.
Officials at Hueston Woods State Park say wild boar are roaming the area. They believe the boars are responsible for $5,000 worth of damage to the park golf course. Our crews tried to find the animals yesterday but had no luck. “They’re very elusive nocturnal in the evenings, but if you happen to come across them and they have young, I’d say beware and stay away from them,” said Lonnie Snow.
Park officials say the boar, which weigh up to 350 pounds, aren't going away soon. They expect them to stay around for at least a few years and then migrate away from the park. In fact, some have already been spotted up near I-70.
