The ones that do eat the typical stray dog off the street are the same types who do it here in America, the starving homeless. I would doubt that a starving homeless person would have much of a chance against a Wild Boar, even if he/she does know Tae Kwon Do...having a 4th degree Black in it, I cannot remember what techniques were developed for such an attack.
Dogs were removed off the menu during the Olympics because it was considered offensive to so many cultures. A quick search on Google indicates that it is still going on. Supposedly only 10% of the population of South Korea eats dogs. In North Korea, I guess you get your protein however you can. I am Chinese and I know Chinese eat dog as well. My comment was meant in jest rather than racism. I apologize to anyone I have offended in any way shape or form.

As for going hand to hand with a wild boar, my comment was also made in jest. I am amazed at the tae kwon do skill of some of the exhibitions I have seen and I could imagine some of those strikes injuring a wild boar. I guess in a last ditch effort, giving Miss Piggy an upchuggie in the throat or ribs. At least she will have to earn her dinner!
