BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — While normally effective on people, a Hernando deputy learned the hard way that Taser stun guns do not work very well on wild boars.
The sheriff's office reported that Deputy Joseph Tibor responded to complaints of an "extremely large pig" tearing up a resident's yard in a Brooksville neighborhood Tuesday morning. He quickly found a 450-pound boar rooting up shrubbery and threatening a water fountain.
The animal then flashed his tusks toward onlookers. Tibor tried to stop it with his Taser, but the 50,000 volts had no effect on the animal.
The boar was eventually corralled into a neighbor's trailer.

I wonder if one of the prongs did not stick because of their tough skin. It should have had an "effect". We had a guy in our trainig that was so lean one prong bounced off his back and the instructor had to follow up with the drive stun to complete the circuit.
