PostSubject: WILD BOAR ATTACK..!!!   Wed Jun 22, 2011 11:51 pm

Hi Folks,

My friend was riding along Neo Tiew Road and was attack by a wild boar. I am not sure exactly at which spot as I have not spoken to him yet but got the news from his Bro-in-Law, it should be somewhere Neo Tiew Road near Lim Chu Kang Road area. I understand that he was riding with another friend and did not notice the wild boar in the bushes and when he saw the wild boar running out of the bushes it was already too late, the wild boar run him over and the next thing he knew, he was on the floor with great pain at the back. Fortunately, the wild boar did not attack him any further but just ran across the road and disappeared into the bushes, in which he suspect the wild boar was trying to cross the road and he happened to be on its way. My friend suffered minor fracture on his lower back bones, probably due to the impact of fall and against his handphone which was in his back pocket. And yes, like any other riders.... he is glad that his bike did not suffer even a scratch..geez..:-((

I am sharing this to alert you folks who may be riding into Neo Tiew area but my advise is wherever you may be riding, always stay alert and look out for any animals or pedestrians that may be cutting into your path, always expect the unexpected.

This is my first post here, Moderator please help to move this post to the correct place if it doesn't belong here.

Ride Hard! Ride Safe!

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hope he recovers well... I heard about wild boars in Singapore but never had news that people were attacked. Neutral

Thanks Folks!

Yes, my friend and I also think that he just happened to be at the wrong place the wrong time... do not think that the wild boar wanted to attack him.

Just sharing for folks to take note and stay alert.. :-))

When my brother was serving in Tekong, there was a case of a landrover that got rammed from the back by a wild boar. The landrover went off road when the wild boar impacted them and the poor fellow died from the impact. The two very shaken driver and passenger brought the wild boar back because I quote them "no one will believe our story if we don't bring back the wild boar"

I think the hog was startled by the group and was dashing for cover and wasn't attacking. When a boar attacks, it uses its razor sharp tasks to inflick deep gashing wounds.
Speedy recovery to the injured cyclist.

Yes Vintagebiker, most animals do not attack human for no reasons.. my friend and I also do not think the wild boar was attacking him but more like my friend was on its path when it was trying to cross the road... just posting in here to alert cyclists to take note and keep a look out when they cycle there.

You won't be able to spot a wild boar. This is all luck. Animals in the wild don't check for traffic nor blind-spot Hope your friend get a quick recovery.
