Wild pigs on the loose in New York

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

State officials in New York say wild pigs are on the loose.

Environmentalists say the feral pigs are damaging corn crops throughout the region. One farmer even reported damages of $20,000. In some cases, hunters are taking matters into their own hands and shooting pigs. And wild life officials are also trapping others.

The Department of Environmental Conservation is urging residents to report any sightings of the pigs.
