Lost hunters found after hours-long search

A group of lost hog hunters and their dogs were rescued Tuesday morning after an hours-long search operation in rural Dallas County.
At about 1 a.m., four hunters and several dogs chased a feral pig into the woods off Malloy Bridge Road, near the Trinity River, in southeast Dallas County. According to police, the hunters fell into the river, swam a distance and crawled their way back to shore before calling 911 for help, police said. First responders from the Dallas County Sheriff and Dallas Fire-Rescue joined police and firefighters in Wilmer to organize a search into the thick brush. A Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter also helped communicate
the group’s position to crews on the ground. Read the full story and more in your Weekday edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
