Sattahip pig pursuit anything but boar-ing

Friday, 07 December 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 49 By  Patcharapol Panrak

A hungry boar made animal rescue officers look silly for about two hours, as the noisy pig repeatedly evaded capture in a Sattahip neighborhood.

Residents of Khrua Navee village called Sawang Rojthummasathan officials Nov. 20, complaining that the 200 kg animal was rooting through yards and generally making a nuisance of itself as it searched for its next meal.

Three officers responded and thought they had easily cornered the 2-year-old, until it squeaked by them. They then lassoed the boar, but it again escaped by tearing the nylon rope as it was being lifted to a second-story pen.

“But I don’t want to get into that pickup truck!” This 200kg wild boar gives animal rescue officers all they can handle. “But I don’t want to get into that pickup truck!” This 200kg wild boar gives animal rescue officers all they can handle.

It took another couple of hours to again ensnare the animal, with officers this time swooping it up in a morgue body bag, then tying it in a knot. To be sure the piggy was packed, they tied it to a sign until a truck arrived.

Resident Kampanath Lappol, 42, said he was glad the boar was returned unhurt.
