From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 27 September 2022

There have been sightings of wildpigs around Wellington,  in Aro Valley, Brooklyn and Karori suburbs.

There are also reports of pigs getting into back yards, Polhill reserve, and along walking tracks.

Unfortunately for one goat farmer by the Brooklyn wind turbines, wild pigs have been killing her goats.

Naomi Steenkamp from Brooklyn Creamery talks to Jesse about the problem of the wild animals venturing into Wellington suburbs.
