Wild Boar Attacks!

– – Wild boars are attacking!–And please note that we are talking about the animal spelled “boar,” not “bore,” although lord knows we have an abundance of such creatures.   Anyways, while Americans have been battling with Hurricane Sandy, China and Germany have been hit with wild boar attacks.  In Berlin, Germany, a wild boar appeared out of the woods, and attacked four individuals before eventually being shot by a police officer.  Then in Shantou, China, a boar broke into an office, in the process breaking down a glass window, smashing a water pipe, and attempting to get at a cook.  The Chinese boar eventually escaped, and has yet to be found by investigators.

It has been speculated that the German boar had been hit by a car prior to the attack, due to the fact that it had suffered a left front leg fracture.   The notation was made that injured animals can get aggressive as a defense mechanism.  

…and by the way, good readers…Happy Halloween!

        By the way: Turner Classic Movies showed SON OF FRANKENSTEIN (w/Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and Basil Rathbone) last night. Mr. Rathbone played Baron Wolf von Frankenstein, and a certain little kid actor played his 5 year-old son, Peter. Well, Peter points to this stuffed-and-mounted head over the breakfast table and asks what it is.

        To which Wolf replies: “That’s a boar.”

        And, Peter asks: “You mean, like Aunt Fanny?”

        My laughter drowned out the rest of the dialogue.
