LANCASTER, Mass. (AP) -- This was no ordinary road kill.
Massachusetts State Police say a 200-pound Russian wild boar was euthanized after being struck by a vehicle on a road in Lancaster earlier this week.
That was a big surprise to state wildlife experts. They say although some wild boars are known to live in northern New England, there never has been a native population of feral swine in Massachusetts.
Hunter Chester Hall said he was offered the carcass for coyote bait.
