MISS piggy! Moment Italian huntress fails to shoot charging wild boar and is forced to HIT the snarling beast with her gun as it fights back
- A female hunter in Italy was forced to beat a wild boar with her shotgun
- The woman fired two shots at the wild board on Sardinia but failed to kill it
- She was unable to reload her weapon as the boar charged directly towards her
- It is not known if the woman had hit the boar with any of the two rounds fired
This is the moment a female hunter is forced to use her shotgun as a club to beat a snarling wild boar away after she failed to kill it with two shots.
The incident was filmed in the commune of Erula in the Italian province of Sassari on the Italian island of Sardinia.
The footage shows the female hunter pointing towards an area of overgrowth where wild boar is hiding before it charges towards her.
The woman fires two shots in quick succession but appears to miss with both shells and starts to panic when she is unable to reload.
The woman aimed her shotgun towards a wild boar which charged towards her in Sardinia
The woman failed to kill the boar, pictured, and was forced to bash it with the barrel of her weapon to prevent it from attacking her
The boar continues to charge at the woman who is forced to defend herself with the barrel of her shotgun, striking it wildly at the animal.
The unnamed hunter is heard shouting ‘go away’ and ‘get off’ as she continues to hit the aggressive boar which then turns and runs as she calls for help from friends.
She is then heard asking ‘what could I do?’ and ‘I couldn’t reload’ as she apparently shows blood in the bushes and says that she was really scared of the sudden attack.
The footage, which was widely shared online, prompted calls for hunting to be put on hold during the pandemic with critics saying that people who engage in killing wild animals run the risk of getting involved in accidents themselves which will put further strain on hospital resources.
They said the footage highlighted the fact that hunters are often behaving irresponsibly with firearms, and the correct thing to do is to stop all hunting.
