Hunter injured by trapped wild pig

A HUNTER sustained serious arm and leg injuries after being bitten by a wild pig in Kratie province’s Snuol district on Thursday. Kim Lok, a police officer stationed in Ksim commune, said Van Seng Hak, 24, was injured after a pig he had trapped with his brother in law lashed out violently, biting him several times in the arm and leg. “One of the two victims were injured by a wild pig’s bite when they were hunting them,” Kim Lok said. “He was saved by a doctor.” Kim Lok said the two hunters climbed a tree and waited there until the pig freed itself from the trap and left the scene.
