It's officially Halloween month and many people will soon start carving pumpkins.

But think twice before you leave your beautifully crafted creations outside your door, as javelinas are known to snack them.

Arizona Game and Fish recommends you keep your pumpkins inside at night.

The 40 to 60-pound beasts are more than a nuisance -- they can be dangerous.

Javelinas can be aggressive toward people and pets, so this is something to be aware of, especially with kids trick-or-treating in neighborhoods.
