The boar breathes fire, has eyes that catch the slightest movement, has tusks more powerful than 100 men, can kill people by stomping on them, throwing them upwards, and stabbing them to their deaths.
Although the boar has bristles as big as spears, he has soft hair on his head and can easily be killed there

The boar was slayed by Mealeger with two spears and a mighty swing of his sword.
