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.”

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.
