Missouri City’s neighbors have problems with feral pigs

MISSOURI CITY, Texas (KTRK) — Some homeowners in Missouri City go to great lengths to keep unwanted neighbors off their property.

Groups of wild boar were caught on camera tearing up farmyards throughout the Creekstone neighborhood.

Neighbors said the problem has persisted for seven months and has forced at least one yard to put up wire fences in the front.

These wild boars, moving in large groups, encounter manicured lawns in the dark, and by daybreak have homeowners discovering huge holes and torn grass.

“So out of 30, at least 15 are big, very big,” said resident Gopal Ramakrishnan.

Ramakrishnan has only been living in Creekstone for seven months and has suffered so much garden damage that his wife has told him not to waste money on cleaning.

Across the street, Freddy Olivero shared video of the damage left to his flower beds.

“We previously had to call our landscaper twice to fix the problem,” said Olivero, who has only been living in his home for two weeks.

Sacks of fresh mulch are piled up outside another yard, a sign the pigs have struck again.

The property owners are also working to stop the devastation.

Olivero told ABC13: “Just (Thursday) I installed a light with a motion sensor.”

Another couple erected a wire fence around their entire front yard after multiple attacks on their lawn.

“People buy the laser tags with red color like infrared. But it doesn’t work. Nothing works,” Ramakrishnan said.

He said their homeowners’ association is working to fix the problem by building fences where this neighborhood meets vacant fields.

“They do things to protect the neighborhood, they put up fences and stuff like that, how effective we don’t know,” he said.
