Mežacūkas Šmerļa kapos. Droši vien nāksies tās visas kaut kādā veidā akurāti noķert un izvest uz mežiem ārpus Rīgas. pic.twitter.com/7wpeaUrbVR— Nils Ušakovs (@nilushakov) May 11, 2015
In his post the mayor suggests that "probably we will have to catch all of them and take them away into the woods outside of Rīga."
This is what happened last week when two adult specimens made their way all the way to the canals of Old Town and Freedom Monument square before being caught by police and vets near the central train station and released outside the town of Ķekava.
The city council has established a hunting council to begin considering options for containing the nuisance, which residents of Riga's outlying wooded neighborhoods have grown increasingly concerned as the number of sightings has recently increased.
