African Warthog Captured in Florida

Florida warthog

FWC responded to reports of an African Warthog roaming around St. Lucie County, Florida last month. Several attempts to trap the hog were unsuccessful. A few days later, he was spotted and they tried again to snare trap it. Finally, Officer Bradley Toby had to tackle the warthog, until it could be guided into a trap. Fortunately, Toby only suffered some cuts on his legs. I hope there’s some video of the thrilling capture that gets released at some point!

Unfortunately, the animal had to be put down so they could examine it for disease. There’s no indication how the warthog came to be living in Florida. This is the first I’ve heard of it: though it’s not the first African animal to be caught in Florida… while the Burmese python is the most notorious, there has been a spread of African Rock Pythons as well, which are also large and very aggressive. I’ve personally seen some Guinea Fowl wandering around residential neighborhoods here in Fort Myers: but those are nothing to be scared of! Glad the FWC officer was ok… those warthogs can be tough if you do not show them respect!

There’s a New Han Solo Trailer…

I’m all excited about the new Han Solo trailer that came out yesterday, but I don’t have to tell you… you already saw it last night. Well, here it is again!

This one may not be set to Sabotage, but I am still eager to see it!

Now a T-Rex is attacking Ohio!

It reminds me of the dinosaur, and the creepy skull images from Hurricane Matthew last year…
