Wild Boar Charges at Man on German Beach

A wild boar charged at a man who was walking along the coast on the German island of Ruegen, biting his leg and causing him to twist his ankle.

Jan Odendahl told Storyful that he approached the boar to record a video so he could show his children, but he got a shock when the animal ran toward him.

Odendahl said he fell onto the stones while retreating, and protected himself by kicking the animal in the face, with a passerby helping him by throwing stones.

The bite marks remained visible for over a month after the incident, which was in November last year, Odendahl said. Credit: Jan Odendahl via Storyful
