In his post, Mr Turner, explains that he was walking in a park when he noticed a group of boar. At first he was delighted to see them since he had never seen one so close up. However, about half an hour later his delight turned into fright when he bumped into another group, "four or five hulking adults and countless piglets," one of which charged at him moments later.
Upon seeing the animals, Mr Turner first decided to turn and walk away. "Moments later I hear a noise behind me like galloping horse, and turn to see a massive wild boar, head down, charging straight at me," he says in his post.
Mr Turner eventually decided to run and look for refuge. He tried to escape the boar by climbing a tree but slipped on the wet wood and hurt himself.
"By the time I turned round, the boar (no doubt thinking "that's got rid of that swine") had trotted back to join the rest of the group, which was melting back into the forest," he says in his blog. "All my minor injuries were self-inflicted: the boar never made contact," he adds.
He further shares that he has read more about boars and explains what he would do if he has another encounter with them.
