A herd of wild boars did the world a favor recently when they stampeded and killed three Islamic State terrorists near the Iraqi town of Hawija.
The Times of London reported that the Jihadists were preparing an ambush near Kirkuk when the wild herd of boars overran their position and killed three of them. While some of the terrorists were able to hide from the stampeding boars, at least three were not so lucky and were crushed to death.
Sheik Anwar al-Assi, chief of a local tribe that is fighting ISIS said, “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.”
The Sheik told the Times that the incident had happened after the ISIS militants had slaughtered 25 people in the town of Hawija. This follows another massacre in the same town last August where 85 people were killed.
There has been recent success of ridding Iraq of the ISIS fighters, but this is the first time that wild boars have helped in the campaign.
The last major stronghold of ISIS in Iraq is the second largest city in the country, Mosul, and Kurdish forces are fighting to reclaim it.
