Wild boars are roaming the streets of Islamabad at night, and have even snuck onto the grounds of the presidential palace.
"The pig was like a terrorist. We shot him down," said station chief Fayaz Tanooli. "I have told the guards if another pig gets in then they will be dismissed." Alternatively, the chief could huff and puff and bloooooow their house down!
In Tuscany, the locals would stew that boar for hours with garlic, tomatoes, chili peppers, red wine, cloves, and fresh oregano, and then serve it tossed with papparadelle. But then, the Italians probably better than anyone else know how to appreciate life.
