Three Islamic State Fighters Were Reportedly Mauled To Death By Wild Boars

According to the Muslim religion, pork is forbidden because the meat is derived from 'unclean animals'. The Quran prohibits the consumption of 'flesh of swine'. It seems some wild boars in Iraq got wind of Muslims bad-mouthing them and took revenge on an unfortunate trio of terrorists.

Kurdish fighters reported to The Telegraph that some terrorists were near the city of Kirkuk when they encountered a pack of wild boar. The angry animals mauled the three men, leaving their dead bodies splattered all over the road.

Refugees were fleeing ISIS when they stumbled upon the bodies. “Some refugees saw the bodies on the edge of a farm when they were fleeing and they told us. A few days later, ISIL started to kill pigs around the area,” said a source.

According to reports, the local terrorist cell was so furious that they went on a spontaneous boar hunt. Reports say that ISIS members went on a “killing spree of wild boars in the area" to punish the boar for their crimes. Soldiers scoured the countryside with guns and a mass killing of boar took place. Unfortunately, since the strict Muslim extremists won’t eat the boar meat, it’s likely to go to waste.

“Three fighters from ISIL were near the Peshmerga checkpoint in al-Rashad. They met some feral boars and the boars killed the three fighters,” the Telegraph Reports, citing a Kurdish official.

By some reports, it was an entire herd of boars, and in addition to the two dead soldiers, it left another five fighters injured.

An alternative version of the story has been rumored, and it's possible that the three men who were killed were actually shot by ISIS, and then their bodies, left behind to rot, were ravaged by boars. Some accounts say they may have been ISIS soldiers who were trying to defect.

ISIS has been having major problems with defectors. Hordes of fighters have been quitting and fleeing after being disillusioned with the way the Islamic State is run. There is a lot of corruption and hypocrisy going on among the commanders, and young, gung-ho fighters who signed on to defend Islam and Sharia Law are quickly realizing that their leaders aren't practicing what they preach.

Another reason militants are fleeing is that they're horrified by the ravages of the war. Seeing or being forced to take part in massacres resulting in the brutal deaths of civilians, including women and children, has become too much for some fighters' consciences to bear.

Islamic State leaders don't want it getting out that their soldiers are hightailing it and running away, so it isn't uncommon for defectors to be killed, and some cover-up story to be concocted. It wouldn’t be surprising, either, if they would make up a tragic and dishonorable death, such as a defector being mauled to death by unclean animals. It would be a most undignified way to die, giving the terrorist group the last laugh over their traitors.
