ZOO bosses have admitted it could take several more weeks before an escaped wild pig could be found.
The young female red river hog escaped from Colchester Zoo at the end of July after either a trespasser of fox spooked the group of animals.
Despite a number of sightings, she has still not been caught.
Anthony Tropeano, director of the Maldon Road zoo, said: “It will take some time to find her.
“Red river hogs live in the woods, so she is probably enjoying herself out there.”
He added: “We’re still sending search parties out to find her.”
