I think I know what side those wild boars are on.
Not only does ISIS have to worry about America and its allies, they also have to worry about wild boars, because it seems like three of those a-holes have been killed by boars. Go boars.
At least eight ISIS fighters were ready to ambush a bunch of anti-ISIS fighters when the wild boars got in the way. Thankfully. Here is how Newsweek described it.
At least eight ISIS fighters had reportedly taken cover among dense reeds in Iraq’s al-Rashad region, about 55 miles southwest of Kirkuk, in preparation for a surprise attack on local anti-ISIS tribesman when a herd of wild boars attacked the jihadists on Sunday, killing three. The militants likely disturbed the notoriously short-tempered animals, Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and head of the group of local tribesmen who took up arms after ISIS took control of the nearby town of Hawija, the The Times.
“It is likely their movement disturbed a herd of wild pigs, which inhabit the area as well as the nearby cornfields. The area is dense with reeds, which are good for hiding in,” Assi added.
Well damn. Those boars were not in the mood to be messed with. And get this: the ‘mutilated bodies’ of those ISIS fighters who were attacked by the boars were discovered by refugees who happened to be running away nearby.
It is now being reported that ISIS is trying to kill off all of the boar population. That’s right. Those idiots are trying to kill boars, but chances are that will just piss off those boars even more. In conclusion, score one for the boar.
