Wild boars run amok amid fierce blaze

WILD boars ran helter-skelter after their farm at Nakhon Ratchasima’s Muang district caught fire early this morning (Feb. 2) and it took over an hour to gather them again, Thai News Agency said.

The farm owner, Master Sergeant Thawee Phakdeesarn, 67, said he set fire to a pile of rubbish but strong winds quickly spread the flame to his single-story house and two cars which were almost completely destroyed.

The 50 wild boars he raises on the two-rai farm got frightened and ran for their lives but were later safely gathered together again.
