Boar pokes self in eye with tusk

Friday, 04 October 2013 From Issue Vol. XXI No. 40 By  Patcharapol Panrak

A particularly long-in-the-tooth boar needed emergency surgery after he poked himself in the eye with his own tusk.

Piemsak Ngamta, 32, called animal-rescue officers to his house in Naklua to aid 10-year-old Sornran, whose two tusks had grown and curled upward, cutting the animal in one eye.

The boar was taken to a veterinarian, who anesthetized it and cut the fang to a manageable length before treating the wound. The boar was given antibiotics and is expected to recover fully.

This poor old boar was bored with pain when his tusk bored into his eye.This poor old boar was bored with pain when his tusk bored into his eye.
