The wild boar who escaped from a Borders abattoir 13 days ago has died in a road accident.
Wild boars were once native to Scotland
Lothian and Borders police said the pig, dubbed Houdini, was hit by a car near Galashiels just after 2000 BST on Saturday.
The boar was only a mile from the abattoir on Winston Road where he had fled from being slaughtered.
No-one was hurt in the accident on the B6374, although the car was slightly damaged.
Houdini gave slaughterhouse workers the slip at the Scottish Borders Abattoir earlier this month and was last spotted in woodland by anglers on the River Tweed.
Lothian and Borders Police had warned members of the public not to approach the 130lb escapee.
A spokesman said: "He was doing well to avoid capture, but unfortunately that is it. There will be no further inquiries."
