350 Pound Wild Boar Chases Humans At Priceville Hardees

350 Pound Wild Boar Chases Humans At Priceville Hardees

Gasoline pumpers in Alabama got a dose of early-morning mayhem when a wild boar charged the premises.

“It was running wild,” Rose, a Hardee’s restaurant manager, told Newsweek of the feral animal stirring up fears in folks who were attempting to gas up at two different pumping stations just off Highway 67 near Garth Road in Priceville, Alabama. “It was chasing people, and it was big.”

The 59-year-old manager said she arrived at the fast-food eatery at around 3 a.m. on Monday just as police officers from two jurisdictions attempted to corral it.

“I pulled into the parking lot and got into the door, and I was looking right at it,” she said of the 350-pound beast that had now fled from the Mapco gas station and was hoofing straight toward her Hardee’s parking lot.
