WAKAYAMA (Kyodo) A wild boar that ran amok in downtown Wakayama last weekend was found dead Tuesday evening near railroad tracks, police said, adding that it was apparently hit by a train.

At around 4 p.m. Tuesday, a passerby called police saying a boar was walking near a Nankai Railway grade crossing. The boar was last seen at around 8 p.m., when it fled from dozens of officers.
