The booster seat of his baby was used by a gardener to catch a massive black bear that attacked a golf course and injured two people.
James Hart (45) had just gone to his wife’s house to get her car, when the “flipping huge” Vietnamese hog confronted him on Sunday.
A pair of players from a local golf course were mowed down by the corpulent pig. One player was left with a severe headache and required an emergency tetanus injection.
Hart was a resident of Hart. He said that at the start of the two hour ordeal, he called RSPCA and the police while trying to direct the pig away form oncoming traffic.
The farmer finally caught the animal and brought a trailer. He, along with another woman, took the animal into his vehicle.
Hart didn’t describe his horror but said that the whole incident was hilarious. He also recalled how he used his booster seat to protect the boar.
A pair of pigs caused chaos by storming the green and digging holes at the Lightcliffe Golf Club in Halifax, West Yorkshire, on Sunday
Later, on Tuesday, the black porcs attacked and injured a male worker who attempted to remove them from the nine-hole course.
James Hart, 45, only popped out to pick up his wife’s car when he ended up using a booster seat to corral one of the escaped boars into a trailer
The farmer Mr Hart and the police managed to get the reluctant boar in the trailer.
He exclaimed, “It’s hilarious. It was funny that I only got out of my car to retrieve it.
“I assumed it was big, so I grabbed my dog. But, as I came closer to it, it turned out it was actually a pig. It tried to attack me every now and then.
“Sometimes it was calm but other times it appeared to be angry and tried to kill us.
We used the booster seat because it was my closest item to carry in the car.
“It wanted it to return to the golf course. So we stopped the traffic, ushered the vehicle across the road and then it entered.
Hart received assistance from a neighboring farmer, and also a woman who claimed she raised pigs.
They were able resolve this unexpected situation with the assistance of the police
Mr Hart continued: ‘A chap was passing, who is a local farmer, and he said “I’ve got a trailer.. Shall I go and get it?”‘

Club member David McKidd, 40, said the animals, thought to be Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs, were first spotted on Sunday, injuring a man by causing cuts to his leg
Hart stated that the boar was generally calm. But, he said that the boar was largely calm.
“He arrived back with his trailer and two boards, 20 minutes after he left. Between me and the police officer we managed to bring him inside.
“He was reluctant to enter, but we were able to convince him to come in this trailer.”
While no injuries were sustained while corralling the pork, Hart stated that the situation could have turned sour if it had reached a school near him.
David McKidd (40), a professional at Lightcliffe Golf Club, stated earlier in the day that he saw the pigs and was among the first to notice them. The pigs caused leg injuries to a man.
He added: ‘They were running round, knocking over people’s golf bags and charging at people.
‘I’ve never known a course had to shut for this reason.’
Since then, the golf club was reopened. Both hogs were reunited with their owners.
