Forum on Feral Hogs on Feb. 20

February 11th, 2013 by Keith Hutchinson

The City of Georgetown will hold a public forum to discuss problems with feral hogs on Wednesday, February 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. The meeting will be in the Hewlett Room on the second floor of the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth Street.

Feral hogs have been causing lawn and landscape damage for some homeowners in the River Ridge, River Chase, and San Gabriel Heights neighborhoods. The animals are entering yards via the South San Gabriel and Middle San Gabriel river corridors.

The forum will be an opportunity to share information and look at options for the feral hog issue.

Staff from the Georgetown Police Department, City of Georgetown Animal Services, and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will be at the forum.

For questions, contact Assistant Police Chief Cory Tchida with the Georgetown Police Department at (512) 930-6101 or
