SEBASTIAN, Fla. (AP) - Maintenance crews at a South Florida golf course are figuring out how to get rid of some unwelcome visitors on the greens - wild boars.

The hogs bury their snouts in turf, ripping up large pieces of grass in an attempt to get earthworms underneath the root system. They've already damaged the 14th and 11th holes at Sebastian Municipal Golf Course.

Maintenance crews have spent more than 40 hours trying to repair the shredded greens. Unfortunately the better fertilized the greens are, the more tantalizing they are to the wild pigs.
