Welcome to the year of the pig

Four people were attacked by boars and slightly injured at about 4 p.m. Monday in a residential area of Yawatahama, Ehime Prefecture, police said.

A 69-year-old woman was walking along a road when she was knocked down by a charging boar. Over the next 15 minutes three other people were attacked by wild pigs in the same area.

The police assume several boars were involved in the attacks, the largest being about one meter long.

The police and members of a local hunting association searched the area for the boars for about 1-1/2 hours from 4:30 p.m., but the animals were not found.

The attacks happened near a mountainous area. The city government said the boars likely wandered into the residential area in search of food, and cautioned residents to be careful.

DAMN- the year of the pig gets off to a flyer. And let me tell you: if some sneaky sucker-punching boar tried that crap on me, I'd have him on the barbecue before you could say "akemashite omedeto gozaimasu."
