Chickens, pigs behind calls to deputies

Yakima County Sheriff deputies responded to a report yesterday afternoon (Wednesday) of chickens causing damage at a property in the 100 block of Lester Road near Sunnyside.

Later in the afternoon a person called the Sheriff’s office to report a “very large pig” running alongside the roadway near the intersection of Van Belle and Dekker roads near Outlook. The person called back a short time later to say that a second pig had joined the first.

In addition to handling animal problems yesterday, deputies also responded to an automatic alarm, took two informational calls, provided an agency assist, investigated a report of a car accident, conducted a welfare check and provided assistance to a citizen.
