Insurance can be 'a real boar', finds German butcher

A GERMAN butcher has said he faces steep bills after a wild boar tore through his shop in an hour-long rampage, but will at least recover some of his losses by selling slices of the slain beast.

The boar wandered out of a nearby forest and into the shop and caused about €5,000 in damage before being shot by a local hunter, Rainer Kraemer said.

"The butcher shop isn't covered for a wild boar attack," said Kraemer, whose shop is in the town of Hoehr-Grenzhausen.

The 290lbs boar will only fetch about €400 after Mr Kraemer carves it up.
