Tourists terrified by wild pig can testify it's never boaring in Kyoto
A wild boar ran riot at Heian Jingu shrine, the Kyoto Imperial Palace and Nijo Castle here Nov. 27.
The berserk beast panicked sightseers and sent them fleeing for safety at about noon.
"Boar alert!" spat a security guard of Heian Jingu shrine in the city’s Sakyo Ward in an emergency call at 11:55 a.m.
The frantic hog took a man in his late 50s from behind to knock him to the ground in front of Heian Jingu shrine, according to the prefectural police and Kyoto City Fire Department.
The man broke one of his arms.
Other people also suffered minor injuries, sources said.
