There Goes the Neighborhood...And Oktoberfest

Recently eaten: burger
Recent annoyance: if it can be Googled, it can be done

There are multiple things in this article that are very disturbing.

  1. The boar population has risen by 320%: If someone told you that America's killer bee population or brain-eating zombie population rose by 320%, you might be a little concerned. It's almost as bad as what's happening in Burma when the bamboo flower explodes every 50 years.
  2. If you read on, the article also says that the wild boars are digging up graveyards on a daily basis. Okay, hold the phone. Wild boars are digging up dead bodies to eat. That's where I draw the line. I'll sacrifice Bobo, the family cat, but once you mess with gramps, you mess with me.
  3. Why don't they just have a big ol' pig roast at Oktoberfest? There will be thousands of drunken foreigners looking for a greasy nibble.
Wild boars wreak havoc in Germany (via YahooNews) Wild boars are breeding at a huge rate in Germany and wreaking greater havoc than in any other European country by destroying crops, killing pets and even attacking people, according to a new study.

Findings by the Hanover-based Institute of Wildlife Research show that Germany's boar population rose by 320 percent last year because of better access to food and bigger litters of young.
