A large wild boar went on a rampage Thursday in Taishi, Hyogo Prefecture, leaving eight people, mostly senior citizens, injured.

A 62-year-old woman was severely injured after being bit by the animal in her leg and stomach, while a schoolgirl, 13, and six residents in their 60s and 70s also sustained injuries, none of them life-threatening, police and fire officials said.
