. . . boar roaming Britain’s woodland have begun hunting and killing . . . lambs . . . hunting in a pack
The owner of a remote North Taranaki station who killed a wild boar found it "chock-full of lambs" when he cut it open.
Clive Lilley, 53, is believed to be the first victim in Britain attacked by the booming population of feral pigs.
. . . in 2013 there were three occasions when a very large boar charged at people; one was an older lady who was chased, (“she hit the boar with her stick and then with a dog lead but it kept coming so she ran away, she got back to the caravan site in quite a state”), the second was a young man, who was also chased. On both occasions the visitors had dogs but they said that the dogs had not attacked or gone near the boar. On the third occasion the boar (which they think was the same one) ran at one of the site owners, he was “on his own and the boar just attacked”.
Another rider reported that she felt the need to sell her horse as it had become too flighty to be ridden in the forest and one wrote “I have been chased by them whilst riding my horses on 6 separate occasions”.
. . . later finding the tip of his left index finger in his glove.
You could have warned about the missing finger tip!
