ATLANTA - Tracking dogs managed to chase down and attack a 400-pound wild hog that has been scaring children and adults in a suburban Atlanta neighborhood.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that after the dogs attacked, a hunter stabbed it to death Thursday night in the neighborhood near Lithonia. The subdivision is about 17 miles east of downtown Atlanta.

Authorities have said as many as four feral hogs have been roaming the DeKalb County neighborhood for several days.

WSB-TV reports that an exterminating firm has been hired to search for remaining pigs in the area.
