A tragic incident involving a wild boar was caught on CCTV in Ziyang County, Shaanxi province in Central China. It occurred on January 31, 2018.
The 100kg boar, that allegedly descended from the mountains, attacked a 66 year old man named Zhang, who went to his backyard to get coal for a stove. The boar knocked the elderly man down and kept attacking him until there was no saving him.
A relative of sorts tried to ward the boar off with a shovel, but that had negligible effect. The victim’s daughter in law tried to use her cell phone to call the police, but ended up beign attacked by the beast as well. She reportedly survived, but was seriously injured.
