Roving herds of feral pigs are growing and intimidating residents in some neighborhoods in Tantalus, Palolo, Manoa, and Nuuanu. Some people have been trapped in their cars while the pigs forage next to the vehicles and ignore noisy attempts to get them to move. The herds were once a source of amusement, but the larger numbers and more aggressive members have alarmed many residents. Impacted residents are asking for culling of the herds but the City and County of Honolulu do not currently have an animal control program for feral pigs. The only source of relief is the Pig Hunters Association, a volunteer group that don’t charge but will accept donations.
