There’s a video online from Japan of a man walking to work, he looks calm and relaxed, perhaps going over the details of whatever business meetings he had planned for the day, until the moment when his mental focus was no doubt shifted to the fact that he was suddenly being attacked… by a wild boar.

The solidly built creature barrels right into the man’s left knee, sending him flying through the air. While the initial collision looks to have been an accident, the boar is now some combination of frightened and enraged, and it turns back towards the man, who’s still on the ground, charging in again to stab at him with its tusks and bite him on the left thigh before running away.

The man was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for wounds on both legs.

A man who rushed to his aid said, “It seemed to me like it hurt”.

I don’t know about you, but I’ still rather be attacked by a wild boar than have to deal with rush hour traffic on the Schuylkill.
