Two treated for tetanus after pigs storm course and attack golfers

Two pigs have terrorised golfers after charging onto a course.

The large animals stormed the green at Lightcliffe Golf Club in Calderdale, West Yorkshire.

Two people had to be treated at hospital after being attacked by the rampaging swines.

Club professional David Mckidd, 40, said the two black pigs were first spotted on the course on Sunday.

On that occasion they knocked over bags full of expensive kit and injured a golfer by causing cuts to his leg.

The hogs left the scene but were back for more on Tuesday.

A worker employed at the golf club attempted to usher them off the course but was attacked for his efforts.

Both injured parties suffered minor wounds to their legs and were taken to hospital for treatment to prevent tetanus.

The pigs also damaged one of the greens by digging small holes in painstakingly maintained grass.

Police caught the four-legged culprits on Knowle Top Road yesterday.

The club was forced to close last night for safety measures but has since reopened.
