The Starr County Sheriff’s Office is urging the public to watch out for wild boars.

Department spokesman Investigator Rafael Aguirre said the boars have been popping up in residential neighborhoods near Rio Grande City. 

“We recommend when people are driving at night, and they do encounter them on the road, just be mindful that these animals travel in herds,” Aguirre said. “They are wild animals, and they are dangerous, and they are very aggressive. Make sure that you have a hold of your pets because if attacks your pets… they will be attacked viciously."

Aguirre also recommends adding reinforcement to your fences.
