LITHONIA, Ga. (AP) - Some parents fear sending their children to a school bus stop in an Atlanta suburb, saying wild boars have been spotted roaming in a subdivision.

Taneisha Danner tells WSB-TV that some giant hogs chased her children back into the house. Residents say four boars have been seen wandering through their Lithonia subdivision in DeKalb County and rummaging through trash in that neighborhood.

The Atlanta station, which reports that one boar is as tall as a man's waist, aired video of the animals hanging around the subdivision. Neighbors said they've notified DeKalb County police and animal control authorities.

Police said they planned to contact the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
