Wild boar makes a pig of himself


There’s below the belt, and then there’s down under. Anthony Watts, a rugby player for Australia’s Gold Coast Rugby League, is under inves­ti­ga­tion after an oppo­nent accused him of bit­ing his din­gle in a brawl dur­ing the Bycroft Cup pre­lim­i­nary final. An oppos­ing player report­edly pulled down his shorts and alerted offi­cials on the field after the alleged attack. In a state­ment released by his attor­ney Mon­day, Watts “absolutely [denied] that any bit­ing of any nature has taken place… [but apol­o­gized] if there has been any con­tact made to that par­tic­u­lar area of this gentleman’s body.”

Fam­ily mem­bers had a 25-year-old Japan­ese man declared miss­ing when he didn’t return from his vaca­tion, but 11 days later, he turned up on their doorstep. Turns out he’d been mugged and made the nearly 900 mile trek back home on foot!  He told rel­a­tives that he’d stashed the equiv­a­lent of about 10 bucks in his shoe “just in case,” and used that cash to buy bread and bot­tled water over the course of his hike. He says, “I never wanted to make a fuss. I’m sorry to every­one I inconvenienced.”

wild boar beer tapVaca­tion­ers at an Aus­tralian camp­site were rousted from bed by the vio­lent hijinks of a local who’d made a pig of him­self by guz­zling 18 of their beers!  They found the cul­prit to be an actual pig – a wild boar! The plas­tered porker ram­paged through the DeGrey River rest area, tear­ing through a num­ber of trash bags for food and suck­ing down three six-packs of brew. Accord­ing to at least one eye­wit­ness, the boor­ish boar then got into an alter­ca­tion with a cow who resides at the park, chas­ing it around the park­ing lot before falling asleep under a tree. Sounds like a typ­i­cal frat party to us.
