    Seems a good reason not to have your dog's leash tied to your bike. I thought maybe he had been attacked by a wild boar by the headline.

    Oddly sick and perverted link title. Sort of afraid to click it, but I am curious, so I probably will.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing and then upon reading it, thought "oh, an idiot riding with his dog tied to his handlebars while wearing no helmet. that's not a recipe for disaster, but it doesn't really have much to do with the pig."

    So he/she were "Boared to Death?"
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    I think the boar finished him off after the crash, it sounds like the remains were pretty unsettling.

    Ouch

    I have been training my daughter's dog to pull me on the bike...

    I attach the harness to my waist so I can really lean into it if the dog bolts....and she does when she senses wildlife...

    With the harness on the bars you don't stand a chance.

    I heard the Swedish were known to go all out for Smorgasbord but this seems excessive.

    That's entirely likely, but due to shoddy writing, the author did not make that clear.
