Earlier this week, a local man was attacked by a deer in the A.B.M. neighborhood, just down the road from our neighborhood. Johnny Baker was attacked by a 220-pound wild Russian hog. He got cut up, and stabbed by those sharp tusks. He told us how fast and strong that hog was, and it all happened so fast.
