Some residents on South Main Street in Jasper have Porky on the brain after wild hogs have been spotted with a trail cam in the dense residential area.
Nearly a week ago one homeowner noticed visible signs of the creatures. This resident said he found part of his yard destroyed, with the ground dug up and noticeable hog tracks near the site
A trail cam was set up at the residence, which captured several images of the animal. There is some speculation from trappers, however, that there is more than one hog in the downtown area.
