YCSO Called To Cornville On A Report Of A Javelina In A Vehicle Wednesday

Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies were called to an area in Cornville Wednesday for a report of a Javelina inside a passenger vehicle. When the deputy arrived at the scene, there was a Subaru station wagon with a wild Javelina stuck inside. After talking to the neighbors and owner, it was learned that the hatch back was left open during the night and the animal jumped inside, attempting to eat a bag of Cheeto’s. His entrance shook the rear hatch closed, which locked it inside. The Javelina became startled and tore off a portion of the dashboard, the passenger door interior and knocked the vehicle into neutral, which caused it to roll out of the driveway and across the street until stopping under some trees. The javelina wasn’t hurt in the joy ride. The deputy opened the hatch allowing the animal to carefully jump out and run back into the wilderness. No one was injured in the incident.
