TWO teenage girls are recovering in hospital after being seriously injured in an attack by a wild boar.
The incident happened as the girls were hiking in the mountainous Alpujarra region of Granada.
Both 19-year-old Alba RJ and her sister, 16, were flown to hospital to be treated for their injuries.
The boar gored the two girls, leaving wounds in their chest, legs and ribs.
One had a 25-centimetre puncture wound to her left thigh.
According to reports, the boar was being chased by five dogs when it came across the girls, who were walking with their family close to the village of Mecina Bombaron.
The Guardia Civil are investigating claims the animal was fleeing poachers.
