150 kg wild boar attacks sanitation workers, rams police car, China

A 150kg wild boar attacked four sanitation workers in a row while they were crossing a traffic junction in Hefei city of Anhui province yesterday afternoon.

Among the four workers, two were wounded and had been taken to hospital for treatment, 21CN reported.

Soon after its arrival, the wild animal began ramming into the police car. It subsequently fled away to a factory and got stuck in a wire fence. After an hour of "hide and seek", the police eventually shot the boar to death.

Earlier this month, a Fujian policeman shot a passerby while attempting to take down a boar. Ever earlier in October, a writer in Xi'an was besieged by three boars on mountain when he was seeking inspiration for his writing.
