Two men were injured by a wild boar in Kakegawa, Shizuoka Prefecture, on Tuesday.

According to police, a 63-year-old man was attacked at around 11:30 a.m. in a field. NTV reported that he suffered injuries to his face, neck, hands and legs.

About 20 minutes later, a 64-year-old man was attacked by the same boar a few hundred meters away. He suffered injuries to his stomach and legs.

Police said neither man's injuries are life-threatening.

Members of a local hunting association captured the 1-meter-long boar about an hour later on a riverbank and disposed of it.

They didn't capture it, they shot it.

"They didn't capture it, they shot it."

And I hope they put it on a spit and share it for dinner.

The article does not exactly tell us which party was trespassing does it?

"captured the 1-meter-long boar about an hour later on a riverbank and disposed of it. "

Are these euphemisms necessary? Do feelings of guilty and culpability creep in without them?
