People from Asia taking a holiday in Europe and driving through some countries should be aware of the dangers on roads in parts of the continent – wild boars.

In a recent article on Total Croatia News, Paul Bradbury, who has lived in Croatia since 2003, recalled hitting a wild boar in his car.

Bradbury said he thought about getting out of his vehicle to check the damage, but decided to leave after seeing two more unfriendly boars nearby.

A video by Gui Machado, 26, who drove from Thiesi to Torralba in Italy on March 31, showed dozens of wild boars crossing a road.
