Wildlife officials are looking into how a non-native African Warthog wound up running loose in a suburban Treasure Coast neighborhood.
The animal was captured by workers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission last month after it was spotted by residents in a Port St. Lucie neighborhood for nearly a week.
Under state law, owning a warthog requires a permit but no one in that area had one. Officials said the warthog is tame.
