Boars attack crops

LIWA, West Lampung: People in several villages located on the Lampung and South Sumatra border are complaining of repeated attacks on their crops by boars.

The villagers said they failed to earn anything this month because their crops have been devoured by the boars, Antara reported.

Boar attacks are usually more frequent during the dry season.

Although there have been no reported casualties, villagers said they were terrified by the boars because the beast often attacks people.

Khoiruddin, a resident of the Sukabanjar village, said most of the people in the area depend on the crops for a living. (par)
