Hogzilla? 200-pound wild boar struck by car

October 25, 2008


— This was no ordinary road kill.

Massachusetts State Police say a 200-pound Russian wild boar was euthanized after being struck by a vehicle on a road in Lancaster earlier this week.

That was a big surprise to state wildlife experts. They say although some wild boars are known to live in northern New England, there never has been a native population of feral swine in Massachusetts.

Hunter Chester Hall said he was offered the carcass for coyote bait.
