Wild boar on the loose

Passerby knocked down in Nice

A wild boar is not something one expects to see when driving through a city, but it is exactly what some drivers witnessed yesterday. The 100kg wild beast had made its way into the eastern part of the city by way of the ‘lit du Paillon’ and caused chaos during his afternoon rampage. The boar knocked over one unfortunate passer-by, but she emerged unscathed from the freak incident. Despite the efforts of police and fire services, the animal was not caught and returned to the forest in Saint-André-de-la-Roche of his own accord.
