Wild Boar Watches TV (Animal Story 2)
October 4, 2016 1:47pm CST
Germany is a densely populated and highly industrialised country. But there are still forests with wild animals, namely deer and wild boar. Too many, say the farmers when a horde has ravaged a field of maize. The owners of expensive villas at the edge of woods aren't too happy either, when they find their expensively cultivated gardens dug up by the snouts of a wild sow and its young ones. Not enough, say the hobby hunters who need the animals so that they can shoot them. There are stories about animals one better reads about in the newspaper than experiences oneself. An old German couple was sitting on the sofa in their living-room watching TV. The room had a large window facing the garden. The telly was placed in a way so that the screen could be seen from there. Suddenly they heard a loud crash, the window pane splintered and a wild boar came in. It jumped onto the sofa, squeezed between the horrified people and stared at the screen. Obviously the programme wasn't to its liking. It bit the man into a finger, got up and disappeared the way it had come. --- If you're interested in other animal stories, click on the green box above the title.

Oh dear! I suppose the bite could have been avoided if perhaps a show of the wild boar's liking had been on the TV. Boars certainly are bold creatures. Sure would not want to run into one. The one in the photo does have a cute face, however.
