Rangers end terror reign of pig that held Oz community hostage!September 24th, 2008 - 5:32 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Sept 24 (ANI): A pig, with a huge appetite for destruction and bananas, was finally captured after it terrorised a small community near Uki in northern New South Wales.
According to the Courier Mail, Bruce, aka Pigzilla, who had moved in and taken over a small farm outside Uki in recent weeks, was captured by rangers from the Rural Land Protection Board.
Now, the giant porker will be shipped off to a piggery at a secret location where several sows are already waiting for him.
Bruce was caught after making Caroline Hayes, 63, a prisoner in her own home by bailing her up inside the farmhouse until she fed him.
Hayes had been reduced to feeding the hungry porker dozens of bananas to placate him.
He wrecked Hayes’’s yard, fences and a dam, and even forced his way in to the family car and an old school bus in search for food.
“I guess I can see the funny side, but he gets really aggressive when you don”t feed him and I have been terrified at times, because it hasn”t been safe to leave the house,” News.com.au quoted her, as saying.
The neighbours were also fed up of Bruce’’s antics, chasing people and pets to satisfy his insatiable appetite and leaving a trail of destruction. (ANI)
