Wild boar jumps into bed with couple

BERLIN - A rampaging wild boar wrecked an elderly German couple's afternoon nap when it broke into their house and leapt into bed with them before biting the man and fleeing, police said on Wednesday.
"`The boar expended considerable criminal energy in committing this act,"' said Ute Bort, spokeswoman for police in Minden-Luebbecke in western Germany.
Eyewitnesses told police the boar crashed through the glass door of the apartment building at high speed in Espelkamp before ramming open the couple's front door and leaving a trail of its blood in the unscheduled tour of their ground-floor apartment.
Police and local authorities conducted a search but gave up after no trace could be found of the errant swine, who they described as ``of medium stature and build.'' The 71-year-old man was not seriously injured.
