Woman Recovers After Javelina Attack

September 02, 2013

A Tucson woman is recovering after being attacked by javelina as she walked her dog. Mark Hart of Arizona Game and Fish said there was not much she could have done to prevent the attack.

“She was walking a small dog, rounded a corner and came face-to-face with one and then as many as three javelinas that charged directly right at her,” Hart said.

He said homeowners are encouraged not to put out garbage cans until the morning of their scheduled pick-up.
