Feral hogs have been living in Arlington for the last few years mainly along the Trinity River. Feral hogs cause a lot of property damage mainly due to rooting for food. Hogs prefer to run and escape and are not considered dangerous. Feral hogs, like all wild animals, have a potential to be dangerous especially if wounded or cornered. Caution should be maintained if encountering females with young.
