I read this article on Kauai World, the Garden Islands online journal earlier today. To me, this article clearly seperates all of the San Diego city kids from the kids raised with tradition on the hawaiian islands.
A wounded boar, 120 pounds, entered a fenced in field on the Waimea High School campus and charged a bunch of kids. I don’t know if you have ever seen a wild boar, or heard how gnarly they are but this picture may help shed some light on how dangerous these things are.
So this boar charges the group and three girls start screaming. Five students with Boar Hunting experience (uh, are you kidding?) circled the boar to keep it away from the girls and began to herd it away from the group. The boar was foaming at the mouth and was extremely agressive as it had a large arrow sticking out the side of his body.
Two of the high school seniors that were assisting in herding the beast away from the class tackled the boar and slowed it down long enough for more of the students to jump on and help subdue the beast. “We all worked as a pack,” the teacher said. “We used the tools of the land to bring him down.” Simultaniously the teacher, DeCosta, grabbed a pin holding cattle fence upright from the school perimeter and jammed it into the beasts brain five times to prevent it from its relentless attack on the Waimea high school kids.
One student went to the emergency room to have gashes on his left hand from the boars tusks looked into…and get this; By the time he returned to class later that day, the teacher had already beheaded and skinned the pig, lining slabs of meat on the top of a walk-in refrigerator used by the agricultural building. The only thing they need to do now is plan the Luao.
If this were in San Diego the kids would have thought they were hallucinating and would have tried restarting their game boys or called their lawyers. Crazy
