Pages of History: Dog saves man from angry boar

From the pages of the Crescent City American, August 1931.

J. H. Wolgamott, who lives on Alder Road in Elk Valley, is thanking a faithful dog for saving his life Monday when he was attacked by a large boar he was feeding. 

Mr. Wolgamott had gone to the pen to feed the hog, which is 7 years old and has become very vicious, and noting that the hog was in a fighting mood he set down the slop pail to get a stick with which to defend himself. The instant Mr. Wolgamott’s eyes left the hog, the mad animal made a run for him, and in attempting to sidestep its rush Mr. Wolgamott tripped and the hog was upon him. Had it not been for the timely assistance of his faithful dog, he would probably have been torn to pieces. As it is, Mr. Wolgamott is nursing a bad wound on his left hand as a result of having been bitten by the hog. No report on the hog’s condition.
