A wild boar typical to those found in Northern Spain

AN unnamed hunter has died in Galicia, Northern Spain, after a wild boar he was preparing to shoot attacked him on Sunday October 18.

The man bled to death after the attack in Laza, a village in the province of Ourense.

The hunter was tracking the boar with his hunting dogs when he shot the boar and injured it. He came closer to the animal in order to take a final shot and it made a charge and gored him in the leg.

The man’s right leg was punctured and he made an immediate call to the emergency services. He told them his location and when they arrived he was unconscious.

Two ambulances and an emergency helicopter team attended the scene at around midday on Sunday but they were too late to help the man. The injury sustained by the hunter resulted in a serious wound in his right leg and he died from a loss of blood.

The hunter is said to be a police officer from the neighbouring city of Verin.

Local Police spoke to Europa press and called the incident an “unfortunate accident.”

  1. I know. is hard for family and friends, but he has nobody to blame but himself. if he wasn’t hunting, it maybe would not have happened. Animals are living, breathing, warm-blooded creatures, just as we are, and should not be hunted or killed. I, for one, have no sympathy. It’s a pity something like this didn’t happen to the idiot at shot and killed the famous lion. The more incidents of this kind, the better, as it may help to drastically lower the hunting numbers.

  2. I agree with Neil Kemp! I have no sympathy for any hunter that is killed by their victim!! Self defense!! To bad the boar didn’t get him before he was shot!! The day there are no more hunters or animal abusers of any kind left in the world will be a glorious day!!

  3. Love all the ignorant animals lovers, I hope NONE of you eat processed meat because if you do the torture endured by those animals is much worse than that endured from hunters. proper hunters make kill shots cause as little pain as is possible. such as double lung shots. But I guess since you don’t kill the animals yourselves you think you are better, lol the fools you are.

  4. We “animal lovers” are vegans: we regard our sibling species as our equals. We do not eat or use their “processed” corpses in any way, shape. or form. We are aware of factory farming enslavement, of course. We have minds and use them. “Haha” : is your name representative of your level of mindfulness, accomplishment, life achievement, awareness and intelligence? “Haha” We neither kill nor pay others to torture-kill. If that makes us better, then yes,, we are. We in fact see it more as being equal to our nonhuman siblings. Veganism is not about diet. Haha.

  5. You know why I have no sympathy. Because this hunter who was also a police man made that animal suffer. If you can not kill an animal instantly with a gun, you shouldn’t be hunting! Karma is a justice b****!

    Hopefully if there r children left behind they too do not learn to take the life of which is NOT theirs to take… Sorry for your loss but sometimes as quoted, there will be an eye for an eye….

  8. The wild boar populatrion of spain is increasing considerably and people and doigs are being attacked in some rural areas. As afgriculture is abandoned more and more dense thickets are forming which can hide families of wild boars which can attack if defending young. A 110 kilo plus boar is not easy to put off if it charges.

  9. This really made my day.. 🙂

    Guns, escort dogs, shoes, hunting gear, cell phone with GPS, ambulances, helicopter.. that m****r f****r had all these tools and facilities..

    The boar was already shot, injured and bleeding.. but still it managed to kill him.

    hhmmmm.. who was talking about ‘top of the food chain’ blah blah and all that nonsense?

    It’s NOT an unfortunate accident, it’s your karma a*****e. I wish every hunter gets the same kind of punishment.

  10. Actually, I have reared, killed and butchered domestic pigs for consumption by me, my family and friends and I am every bit as happy about this hunter’s demise as the most rabid and deluded vegan. We domesticated animals so that we did not have to hunt wild animals. All wild animal populations are under pressure because of the insane over-population and associated greed and exploitation of and by humans. Every dead hunter is a victory in my eyes.
