Wild Boar Ransacks German Meat Market
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Maybe this animal was seeking revenge. A 300-pound wild boar wandered into a small German town and walked into a meat market. The animal went on an hour-long rampage. It caused several thousand dollars worth of damage. The butcher says his insurance policy won't cover the cost. Apparently there was no wild boar clause. In the end, though, he got some compensation. A hunter shot the boar, which will now go up for sale.
