Innocent pigs in Berlin

“Near Berlin's Tegel airport, an errant herd of wild boar attacked several people, injuring three on Saturday, police announced.

“At about 2 p.m. the panicked herd attacked people at Kurt-Schumacher-Platz before bolting into the nearby Volkspark Rehberge, a 78-hectare (193 acres) lightly forested memorial garden.

“There they attacked a woman and two men. By this stage police had arrived to control the situation.

“Local media reported that it took authorities 18 shots to down one 200-kilogram boar, while the rest of the herd escaped.”

Yes, the link alleges the “wild boars” went “on the rampage,” but the story takes the side of the pigs. Descriptives of pigs: “errant herd” and “panicked herd.”

Injuries must have been the fault of humans in the lightly forested memorial garden.

Somebody teach the Berlin police to shoot better. Eighteen shots to kill one pig?
