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.
