Things can get out of hand quickly when you’re on the wrong end of a boar attack. Just make sure you don’t accidentally shoot your hunting partner in the excitement!
When you combine an unexpected boar attack starting at close range with a couple of surprised hunters you’ve got a recipe for disaster. From the looks of things, it appears as though these hunters shot this boar and thought they had killed it. When they let their guard down and approached the downed animal, it got up and charged them.
That’s when things almost got really ugly.

These guys are lucky nobody got shot.
It’s easy to focus on the furious boar bearing down on you with its razor sharp tusks and completely forget about the position of your hunting partner and other bystanders that may be in the area. However, that’s how people accidentally get shot.
Remember: as bad as being on the wrong end of a boar charge can be, a gunshot wound can be much, much worse.
