Red river hog still on run after break-out
9:00am Monday 26th August 2013 in News
ZOO bosses have admitted it could take several more weeks before an escaped wild pig is found.
The young female red river hog escaped from Colchester Zoo at the end of July after either a trespasser or fox spooked the group of animals.
Despite a number of sightings, she has still not been caught.
Zoo boss Anthony Tropeano said: “It will take some time to find her.
“Red river hogs live in the woods, so she is probably enjoying herself out there.”
He added: “We’re still sending search parties out to find her.”
