Four injured in wild boar attack - World News, Breaking News - Independent.ie:
"Four people have been injured in an attack by a wild boar in a residential area of Berlin.
Authorities said the 265lb animal was shot dead.
Police said the boar bit a 74-year-old man on the back and leg, and knocked a 74-year-old woman to the ground and injured her hip."
Other victims included a 24-year-old woman who tried to help by distracting the boar. She was injured before she escaped by climbing onto her car. Police officers eventually shot the boar to death, but not before it bit one of them. One report claims the animal had a broken leg, possibly the result of being struck by a vehicle. That might explain its aggression. Boar troubles aren't uncommon in Berlin, but this incident is one of the more extreme I've heard of.
Update: Blogger seems to have eaten the comment, but Croconut sent this recent video of a wild boar incident from China:
