Wild boars go shopping in German towns
Raised by wildlife rangers, a herd of wild boars caused a scene in several
villages only miles from the German city of WÃ¼rzburg.
Police and shopping people alike were startled to see the animals show up in
the Veitshöchleim and Margetshöchleim town centres.
One boar is said to have bitten a pedestrian in his thigh, a second allegedly
knocked over a female cyclist, injuring her lightly, whilst a third ploughed his
way through a clothes collection in a fashion store. It also demolished a garden
door, only to be shot by the police in a back yard.
It took the
policemen about three hours to get the towns boar-free. Altogether the policemen
had to shoot three of the animals. Two others were killed in road accidents.
According to one of the rangers, the animals were still young.
