Three Islamic State militants that had set up for an ambush were trampled to death by a marauding herd of wild pigs. Seriously.
Dear Texas, Florida, Georgia, and Louisiana: Don’t kill all those wild boars and hogs just yet—we’ve got a place to send them.
In a case of modern day Karma, three ISIS militants were killed in a wild boar stampede in southern Kirkuk, Iraq.
Somewhere about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk the men had supposedly taken cover in a “bed of reeds” in the Hamrin Mountains, waiting for a revenge attack on local tribesmen who had formed anti-ISIS units, when the wild swine erupted.
The rampaging wild pigs then attacked the militants near some farmland in the al-Rashad area.
It’s said that the “Islamic State (Daesh) militants took revenge at the pigs that attacked (in) the farmland,” but how is unknown. (Barbecue is one possibility)
What is known is that three ISIS fighters met their demise after the wild boars overran their position and wiped them out.
Since Islamic State militants have regularly executed civilians in the region over accusations of collaboration with security forces or simply attempting to flee, hearing about this event will no doubt cause a tongue-in-cheek reaction for many.
