(AP) — Wild pigs are eating front yards in at least one Northern California neighborhood.


KNTV reports that the pigs strike in the middle of the night, digging up front lawns in the Evergreen neighborhood in South San Jose.

Resident Rod Murchison says there are about 20 wild boars that have destroyed more than half a dozen lawns in the neighborhood over the past week.

Some pigs have also eaten geranium plants.

Residents say they believe the pigs are coming from nearby ranchland.

One resident put up a device that shines a red light, simulating a pig predator, hoping it will be enough to keep the hungry grub hunters away.
