    Hog attacks cyclist in Hong Kong

    HONG KONG (AFP) - A Hong Kong cyclist required hospital treatment after he was attacked and set upon
    by a wild pig, a report said Sunday.

    Wong Pok-hon was cycling to work along a highway in sleepy Tai Po district in the New Territories
    when the 1.2 metre grey-brown beast suddenly appeared and rammed into his bike, sending him
    sprawling, the Sunday Morning Post reported.

    After the collision, the pig continued its unprovoked attack and attempted to bite Wong who was
    forced to use his bike as a shield to protect himself from the raging hog.

    The attack ended when another cyclist spotted Wong and fought off the pig with a metal bar, sending
    the animal trotting off back to the hillside.

    Police said they had mounted a search for the fierce pig but had found no trace of the animal.
