Boar attacks retired butcher

A RETIRED butcher was savaged by a rampaging boar while strolling across a field near his home.

John Amis, 62, lost three pints of blood from his wounds as he staggered for help after fending off the animal with a fence pole.

Mr Amis had been walking in Costessey, Norfolk, when the boar attacked him.
