The pig went wild on the golf course, injuring two people and forcing the club to close

Read Time:2 Minute, 9 Second


Two huge pigs recently broke into the course of the Lightcliffe Golf Club in Yorkshire, disrupting the game and even hurting some golfers who tried to drive them away.

They first appeared on Sunday, President Philip Marshall remembered, even though he told the CNN Sport club that they “don’t know where they came from.”

“One of our golfers saw these pigs on the course and tried to drive them away, but he was cut in his leg and had to go to A&E to get a shot,” Marshall said. “Then they disappeared, so we think they are gone.

“On Tuesday, they showed up again. They dug out the 18th green, the first tee, and then our head green supervisor tried to push one of them away, and he hit his leg, so he Had to play. “Tetanus jab but he is good​​. He actually hit a hole in one this (Thursday) morning! So there is no adverse effect on him. “

Although Marshall described the injuries as minor cuts, as a precaution, both went to the emergency room because they were caused by wild animals.

‘Obviously dangerous’

Since members of the golf club cannot put the pigs in their own pens, this is a situation where injuries are contained and outside help is awaited.

Marshall said he called the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and the local police. The police said it was not their authority to collect pigs. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals would come to help when they could, but they were “very nervous”.

“What happened was that I stayed there most of the time until dusk, and we managed to get them to the far corner of the pitch,” Marshall explained.

“So we took them to the corner of the court and left them there. We couldn’t get close to them, we closed the court because they were obviously dangerous.

“They ended up on the trail outside the golf club on Tuesday night. They were put in a transport cart and taken away. We don’t know where they came from or what happened to them.”

Since then, Lettercliffe has reopened to the public and provided additional rewards to anyone who registered to play the game.

“Anyone who booked online and came to play, we provide free bacon sandwiches,” Marshall said.
