Wild pigs caught on camera entering the Riverstone neighborhood in Sugar Land

SUGAR LAND, Texas (KTRK) — Neighbors in Riverstone’s Waterside subdivision in Sugar Land said they were fed up with the new nighttime invaders.

“I heard about the pig problem. But lately it’s literally swamped our little subdivision, our community,” said Bianca Calderon de Lachica.

De Lachica lived in Waterside for four years. She said the wild boar problem had come to her doorstep in the past two months.

“It’s haunting,” she said of the doorbell video, which captures the wild animals on her porch. “My home alone has caused at least $3,000 in damage to our landscape.”

This beautiful and seasonal landscaping, she says, is in need of care, according to the Riverstone Homeowners Association. So the neighbors pooled their money, hired a trapper, and he set up a night vision camera that caught more than two dozen animals.

“Twenty-five pigs, including one that was pregnant,” De Lachica said.

The day the trapper was ready to legally capture the animals for relocation, he was stopped.

“He said, ‘I’m literally going to have them tonight.’ That was his goal and all of that had to stop,” De Lachica said.

De Lachica said the HOA alleged the trapper committed trespassing. Instead, her solution was to have neighbors install motion-detecting sprinklers to repel the nocturnal animals, she said.

“It’s not a practical solution. It’s just a temporary fix,” she said. “We want more answers, we just want one solution.”

Those neighbors are spending the money on the trapper and have more landscaping needs at stake since their HOA, she says, is doing nothing.
