Woman Attacked By Wild Pack of Javelina

Woman Attacked By Wild Pack of Javelina

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) – According to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, an elderly woman was injured Wednesday morning after being attacked by three wild javelina while walking her dog in a residential neighborhood. 

According to a spokesperson for the AGFD, the 64-year-old woman encountered the wild javelina as they were feasting on the contents of a tipped over garbage can.  Despite yelling and waving her arms, the javelina charged her, knocking her to the ground. She was taken to a local hospital and treated for lacerations. 

“Javelina react instinctively to the presence of dogs, which they cannot distinguish from a coyote, a natural foe,” said Regional Supervisor Raul Vega of Game and Fish in Tucson. “But of greater concern in this case is garbage cans outside before the day of pickup.  When javelina are present, garbage cans should be secured indoors, or within an enclosed area outdoors.”

If only I could find a site dedicated to living with javelina
