CASA GRANDE, Ariz. — Two javelinas have been returned to the desert after
they were rounded up during a jaunt through downtown Casa Grande.
The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that the animals were
roaming the streets for about three hours Monday night until a city animal
control officer was able to trap them.
Police Officer Thomas Anderson says it’s not particularly unusual for javelinas
to be found within the city limits since there’s desert on all sides. But he
says it’s not common for them to be in the heart of downtown.
Anderson suggests that residents not approach javelinas but call police so
animal control officers can respond and trap them, if possible.
