all lanes. so everything looks good towards the caldecott tunnel. all right. eastbound highway 4 got your overnight roadwork still out there. sounds like the right lane is blocked between somersville and contra loma and that should be picked up by 6 a.m. hopefully lanes should re-open any minute northbound 880 between 23rd and broadway. they have roadwork there approaching downtown oakland. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." back to you guys. 4:39 now. san jose city council has approved a drastic plan to control the wild pigs in scenic almaden valley. the pigs which normally live in surrounding hills have been roaming neighborhoods tearing up lawns and the almaden golf and country club, as well. they are also showing some aggression towards people. as kiet do reports, trained experts will be able to trap and kill those pigs. reporter: just to be clear, the two councilmembers who pushed for the guns say this will not be a free-for-all killing spree. >> it's not my intention to go out and commit a pig genocide. we are not talking about
hunting season here. we're talking about licensed trappers controlled environment and protecting the property and the safety of our residents. >> reporter: the council voted to make an exception to its ban on firing guns within city limits and says that, yes, trapped pigs can be shot. you still need a depp pri days per miss from the station to trap and euthanize them but the vote means trappers have another option besides using lethal drugs or transporting an angry 300 pounds wild boar and killing them somewhere else. what do you say to people who say this is pretty drastic? >> it's a drastic problem. it is a drastic tool but it is just one tool. nobody has to use it. >> reporter: for two months, dry conditions have forced as many as 40 pigs down from the surrounding hills where they tear up lawns in search of grubs. the pigs caused $10,000 in damage at the almaden golf and country club. the club tried putting up a fence and hired a licensed trapper and said that if tonight's vote didn't pass, the problem would have gotten much
worse. >> just really would have progressed to the fact that we would have been overwhelmed with the pigs. we're surrounded by homes and there was no way we can fence up the whole golf course. it's impossible. >> reporter: kiet do, kpix 5. >> those trappers will only be able to shoot the captured pigs until february 5. that should give them a little more time to come up with a better long term plan. 4:41. coming up, a helicopter tour turns deadly in orange county. how a man plunged hundreds of feet into the ocean. >> they make it look like ordinary house pets. but these felines are something much more exotic. more on these hybrid pets coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

her disappearance until hours later. >> when i hear about these child abductions i can't help think about my own kids. >> reporter: this tech entrepreneur was inspired by a similar story. the abduction and murder of 10- year-old jessica ridgeway in colorado. so last month he launched an app that lets you map your kids' route to school, park or friend's house and track them using their cell phone gps. if the child veers off track. >> mom and dad immediately get the notification saying your child is off course. >> reporter: we created a picture in profile for me and set up a preordained route. let's see what happens if i walk off course. once i get about 30 feet off course, that's when alerts start going off. >> beep beep ] >> at least my alert. so it's showing she is off course now. 12 seconds ago that's where she was. >> reporter: it's at that point that the crowd sourcing kicks in. if a parent can't reach the child, they can hit escalate and then an entire village of

warmer upper 60s coastline, 70s inside the bay, mix of sun and clouds in the valleys well into the 70s. here we go. high pressure bringing you plenty of sunshine the last couple of days but you see couple of weak weather systems encroaching on this ridge. we are going to see some of that over the top of the ridge so as that ridge flattens out a little bit more clouds so likely to roll through but today the warmest day of the week. after this, we start to shift gears maybe start talking about some rain toward this next week. 70s in the south bay, 60s at the coastline, east bay numbers well into the 70s this afternoon too. then inside the bay should be a very nice day, plan on about 75 in oakland, 71 in san francisco, and a comfortable 75 degrees in petaluma. next couple of days, things start to change a bit. more clouds on the way for tomorrow. cooler temperatures too. in fact we are going to cool right through the weekend. then it looks like a chance of showers as we head in toward veterans day. maybe staying unsettled and wet right into next tuesday, as well. all right. time now for your "kcbs traffic" with elizabeth. >> at 4:47 this morning we have
not shown you a look yet at the bay bridge toll plaza. so let's do that. everything looks good right now. we have no metering lights, it being before 5:00 everything is cruising along in all lanes. all your bridges moving at the speed limit. we do have one problem out there. sounds like it's approaching sunnyvale westbound 237 by 101. our camera there in milpitas looks like it flashed off a second. maybe you caught that look. overall traffic is okay once you reach milpitas. they are doing some lane changes right now, that's what these flashing lights are across the golden gate bridge. you can see the crews out there. they are picking up cones and should be re-opening about four in the southbound direction to handle all the commuter traffic in the next couple of hours. so four southbound and two northbound direction. this is right around the time they usually do it. here's a live look at the nimitz, 880 in oakland. they have kind of put a hold on some of the roadwork. we haven't seen it in the past couple of weeks. northbound 880 approaching downtown oakland exits. it looks like it's back! that northbound 880 ride between 23rd and broadway
various lanes blocked just until about 5:00 not too much longer. they are probably picking up the cones right now. and bart so far everything looks good. no delay. in fact, they have more than 20 and they are all on time. we'll take a quick check of your east bay drive times for your more popular routes including the ride through the altamont pass still looks pretty good, much different story than yesterday. that is a check of your "kcbs traffic." back to you. >> all right, elizabeth. thank you. for some cat lovers, it's the latest status symbol. an exotic cat that costs anywhere from hundreds to $30,000. but as we found out, the cats can go wild. >> hey, baby, hi, baby. reporter: at pg's exotic cathetery, a catery things go wild. they are offsprings of domestic cats bread with wildcats. you can't privately own aer isville in california but you can take home a hybrid.

which is sad. >> reporter: marilyn krieger overs several hybrids and is an expert on cat behavior. she says these cats can be trained, that they're smart, lively and loyal. but they need lots of mental stimulation and attention. >> a lot of people, unfortunately, get them for the wrong reasons. and they are beautiful cats. but, they're so active. >> reporter: if you are not home, she recommends an outdoor enclosure or one of her tamer exotic hybrids. she won't sell her early generation cats to just anyone. >> if somebody wants them wild and they want that big cat or that exotic cat, go for it. but if you have little children, do not attempt it. >> reporter: and don't attempt to keep them cooped up in a tiny apartment. these cats need room to roam. a cat specialist told us that choosing a breeder is just as important as choosing the cat. you want a facility that socializes the animals early on. it is 4:51. disappointing news for tesla
all right. time to check your microclimate forecast. let's fly in for a closer look to walnut creek. it should be the warmest day of the week, about 75 degrees. >> and so far, this is a great start to the morning commute. by this time yesterday, we already had several hot spots. and it's just not the case this morning. all is quiet on bay area bridges. we'll have your latest "kcbs traffic" in 10 minutes. 4:54. shares of tesla motors dropped 12% in after-hours trading following a disainter30ing
