MELBOURNE, Fla. -- A homeowner in Melbourne trying to remodel his home found a wild boar inside and it just wouldn't leave. Authorities had to lasso it in order to get it out (images | raw video).

The boar was running around the neighborhood and went into the house being remodeled. A Melbourne police officer shot it with a Taser, but even that wouldn't bring the beast down.
Just after 9:00am Monday, police and animal control officers were called after a homeowner found the wild boar rummaging through his home on Fillmore Avenue (see map). It managed to get inside the home while people were moving supplies in and out of the house.
Fortunately, the home is being remodeled so the boar didn't do any damage to the house.
Authorities say it was charging at people. A Melbourne police officer tried to taze the boar, but the electrified prong couldn't get through the thick hide and it didn't faze him.
Ultimately, the boar was lassoed by a trapper and taken away.
The house where the boar was found is in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. Nobody seems to know how the boar got there in the first place.
