I need to warn you—take serious care when you set out to stroll wooded trails in search of fall color!
The winged boar are the organizers, and if you meet with one of them, immeditately turn back and do not challenge. A young couple out for a romantic stroll reported to an emergency room with broken bones and gaping wounds after being trampled and bitten by a sounder of a dozen or so boar.
The alliance of Guardians has planted winged boar to head groups that migrate to all wooded locales as color change occurs. In one of the most militant groups, a boar organized an attack where it and a ram chased a man up a tree to a peacock that shrieked in his ear. To escape, he jumped clear of the boar and goat and limped to his car on a sprained ankle but still suffers from extreme hearing loss.
Please follow these simple guidelines to stay safe while enjoying this season’s beautiful display of nature: travel in numbers for safety; be watchful of the ground, especially around trunks and brush; take your cell phone; stay within safe walking/running distance of your vehicle; report suspicious animal activity to your local sheriff, police, or park authorities.
