1018Interesting incident on MD Heights
- Oct 1, 2002From NPS Morning Report of Sept 27....
On Monday, September 16, two visitors made a cellular phone call to the
park and reported that they were being attacked by pigs in the Maryland
Heights section of the park. Ranger Ryan Levins found the two visitors,
who were uninjured by shaken up. Investigation revealed that they’d
avoided a noisy charge by six pigs by moving to cover and throwing a
rock at them. They were able to provide accurate descriptions of their
assailants, including length, color and types of snouts and tails.
Levins located two of the assailants on an adjacent property owner’s
land, returned them to their pens, and left a note for the owner asking
that he repair his fence. At the time of the report, the other four
assailants were still at large. An APB has been issued and they’ve been
entered into NCIC.
