Stung Treng man dead after wild boar attack

Khan Sa, a 78-year-old man in Stung Treng province, died on Saturday after a wild boar attacked him in his rice fields in Thala Borivat district, police said yesterday.

“[Khan Sa] could not climb the tree and, as his injury was serious. He died during the long trip to the hospital,” said Iv Leur, district deputy police chief.

After the farmer was attacked on Saturday, locals followed the 95-kilogram boar into the jungle. With its leg caught in a trap, the pig didn’t get very far, and was killed by the angry farmers, who plan to roast and eat the animal at Khan Sa’s funeral, the commune police chief said.
