Javelinas spotted in downtown Casa Grande

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- Two javelinas have been returned to the desert after they were rounded up during a jaunt through downtown Casa Grande.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that the animals were roaming the streets for about three hours Monday night until a city animal control officer was able to trap them.

Police Officer Thomas Anderson says it's not particularly unusual for javelinas to be found within the city limits since there's desert on all sides. But he says it's not common for them to be in the heart of downtown.

Anderson suggests that residents not approach javelinas but call police so animal control officers can respond and trap them, if possible.
