Sonoma hunter hospitalized after wild pig attack

Thursday, August 4, 2011

SANTA ROSA -- A hunter is hospitalized after authorities say he was attacked by a wild pig in Sonoma County.

The Press Democrat reports that the 70-year-old man was taken by helicopter to a hospital after the attack Wednesday morning in a remote area near Lake Sonoma.

Officials believe the man was hurt when the pig charged from the brush and attacked. The man, who has not been named, suffered bites on the knee and hand. His condition is not known.

The hunter first called for help on his cell phone around 9:30 a.m., but because of the remoteness of the area, crews were not able to find him until nearly 11 a.m.
