Walker in shock after having finger bitten off by wild boar a dog walker has described the moment he had his finger bitten off by a massive wild boar terrified clive lilly 53 has become the first victim in britain attacked by the booming population of feral pigs clive was mauled by the boar as he took a morning stroll with his Labrador down a woodland track the Beast burst out of the undergrowth and ripped the top of his right forefinger Ralph during the attack and litany Forest of Dean Gloucester shear the area has become overrun with the wild pigs which have attacked pets and knocked over bins for food even learning collection days clive didn't even notice the dismembered joint until later when he removed his walking love and the end of his finger fell out he described the initial pain as a dull thud but said it was very painful and stung when he returned home on 4 january mr. Lilley said it was 7.30 Emmons still very dark so you couldn't see a thing i was a few hundred yards down the path from my house and I didn't see the boar but it was two feet away and jumped up to bite the four finger off it was only when I removed the glove a minute later

that I realized what had happened because the tip stayed in I called an ambulance which took me to hospital to have it sewn up they told me it should grow back around as it did not take the nail off although there will be a scar mr. Lilly is a house husband whose wife works full time for group forced security he added I've met hundreds of wild boar in the woods previously and never been attacked it showed no interest at all in my dog which was a little way up the track strangely enough when I reported the incident to the Forestry Commission they said a woman had been knocked over by a wild boar at the same spot half an hour before me I have never heard of anyone ever having been injured in this way so there is a possibility it was a rogue Pig it was a large fully grown animal which came up to my thigh as far as I am concerned this attack was completely out of character for the boar but of course people need to be aware that these things can happen wild boar were hunted to extinction over 300 years ago but small populations of the feral species have been established by accidental and deliberate or release

from farms it is believed to be the first time a wild boar has injured a person in the forest of dean where they are common a Forestry Commission spokesman said we are aware of an incident in which a member of the public sustained an injury to their hand caused by a feral wild boar in the forest of dean whilst we do not know the exact circumstances behind the incident we would like to remind woodland users that the feral wild boar can be unpredictable particularly when they have young close by we would also like to remind people not to feed the boar either in the forest or in the neighboring communities the boar quickly learned to associate people with food and then may seek food from walkers the boar are well adapted to the forest and have no need of supplementary food at any time of the year our Kola feral wild boar and the Dean is ongoing to stop the upward growth of the population with the long-term aim to bring numbers back to a more manageable level of around 400 our advice to dog walkers remains unchanged if when walking in the woods you see boar we recommend that you do not approach them go back the way you came
