How To Stop Wild Boars Killing German Drivers

by | 21st, April 2010

FOLLOWING our gallery of animals taking on people – and winning – news reaches us that there are so many wild boars in Europe that worries are that drivers will crash into one.

German car club ADAC has conducted crash tests on boars. No, not real boars, but big plastic ones. Or, so they say…

In 2009, 27 people died and 3,000 were injured last year in collisions with deer, boars, rabbits and wildcats. The advice is:

“If a wild animal appears suddenly, apply the brakes as hard as possible, keep a tight grip on the steering wheel and stay in the lane. In the worst case scenario, a collision with the animal has to be accepted.”
