Boar shot dead

A wild boar, weighing more than 100 kilograms, was shot dead after killing a courser on September 18 in Yun county, Central China's Hubei province, Chutian Metropolis Daily reported. Due to rise in Han river's water level and subsequent flooding of reeds, the boar left its habitat and wandered into a middle school in the county. Six hunters and five coursers were sent to the scene after people alerted police. The boar bit one courser to death before being shot dead by a hunter.

According to reports, the dama occupied a whole road in the city's Jindong district by putting up roadblocks on two sides with a sign saying "Do not enter and turn right". After receiving complaints, local traffic police carried out an investigation.

Lin Hao, who was praised for heroically helping to save people after the Wenchuan earthquake in Southwest China in 2008 at the age of nine, has become a star in many TV series due to his fame.

Many people, including his director Xu Geng, are worried that his excessive devotion to becoming a professional actor will hamper his school lessons as he is still a grade three student at junior middle school, Jinling Evening News reported.

Xu said Lin now has little time for school as one of Lin's so-called "uncles" has established a company and is now operating as his agent.
