A wild boar entered a house in Motegi, Tochigi Prefecture, on Sunday, and injured the resident, police said Monday.
According to TBS, the boar apparently came down from nearby mountains. It entered the house and was eating cabbage when it was discovered by the homeowners. One man was injured by the startled animal after he tried to drive it out of the house with his foot. Police say the animal, measuring 120 cm in length, charged at the man, injuring both of his legs.
Witnesses told TBS the boar then fled the house and was not seen again. Police and the local hunting club searched for the boar, but did not find it. Local residents say that boar sightings in residential areas are very rare.© Japan Today
