Wild Boar

In Germany, in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, there is a small town of Espelkamp. The population is only about 25 thousand people, the city is surrounded by wooded hills, a peaceful pastoral picture …

An elderly couple enjoyed this idyll to the fullest. After a delicious hearty dinner with pork legs and cabbage, the man and his wife went to the bedroom to take a nap or two. And here…

A real vandal burst into the house, he broke through the glass door of the house on the first floor, flew into the bedroom of the spouses at a wild speed, sprinkling his path with blood, jumped onto the bed, and even bit the owner of the house on the leg. After this act of vandalism, this wild nightmare disappeared. The police were called to search for the offender, but, unfortunately, her search for “average build and average height” … a wild pig was not crowned with success.

Such an attack is generally not typical of a wild pig. Although this is certainly a dangerous enemy for a hunter, they usually do not wander into people’s homes. It is a large and dangerous colossus – up to 2 meters long, about a meter high, and 150-200 kg of live weight. Moreover, when meeting in the forest, both wild boars and pigs become dangerous, especially protecting their brood. And if the boars try to pry the enemy with strong and sharp fangs, then the pig will try to dump the foe to the ground and trample with strong hooves. In addition, pigs often rub their sides against trees, take mud baths and as a result, their sides are covered with thick armor of stuck-together bristles, resin, dirt, grass, and twigs, which protects them from the fangs of rivals.
