I see that Rosemarie Hamilton-Meikle, a normally placid pensioner of 80 good years, attacked 3 wild boars in Dartmoor, sending fear into the hearts of the savage beasts. The brutes had the ill-luck to come across her dachsund as he scuttered around under a bush.
I heard a terrible screaming noise and I thought my Bosun had got into a fight with some other dog”, says Rosemarie, “then I saw my little dog lying down on the ground with three wild boar in front of him. I thought he was dead.”
Justifiably angry, she launched an attack with the dog-lead, frightening off two of them, but a large male boar stood his ground. Undeterred, the fighting pensioner swung the dog-lead again.
“The dog-lead has a heavy metal clip so I swung it and caught him on the nose. Then I picked up Bosun and walked away. Fortunately the boar did not follow.”.
Too bloody right! Fortunate indeed the boar didn’t follow. Those things can weigh 440 lb : 200 kg, and can grow to 6 feet : 1.8 m long.
What we do for love! It almost puts Rosemarie into the Darwin Awards
The dachshound was unhurt.
