While the center of Cadaques was crowded, a boar targeted a 10-year-old girl by biting her in the leg.
In search of food as close as possible to dwellings, wild boars are now almost part of the landscape of Cadaques. But what happened on Monday evening, around 10 p.m., in the famous center of the city made by Dalí is cause for concern.
While the streets were crowded on this hot summer evening, a more aggressive wild boar bit a 10-year-old girl who was playing on the beach with other children.
Quickly taken care of by the medical services, the little girl was transported to a medical center and then to the Figuères hospital even if her injuries did not cause any concern on the spot.
The young girl was able to come out of the hospital overnight from Monday to Tuesday after being treated for an injury, indicates TV3. A wound that could have been increased by the defense of the animal than by a bite.
After this attack, the mayor of Cadaqués indicated that measures against wild boars will be reinforced. The municipal authorities also call not to feed the animals that roam the streets of the seaside town.
