Wild boar confronts man and dogs
Police have warned people to be on their guard against a wild boar seen near a Devon town.

A man walking his dogs near the Long Ash Garden Centre at Buckland Monachorum, near Yelverton, was confronted by the boar on Monday.

The animal approached the man and lunged aggressively at his two dogs. It left once the man retreated.

The RSPCA have been informed of the incident. Police are attempting to locate the animal.

They have asked walkers and residents to be wary if confronted by the boar.
