ISIS fought the bacon and the bacon won.
In what has been dubbed the “Iraq story of the year,” three Islamic State jihadists were reportedly killed on Saturday by a drove of wild boars in southern Kirkuk, Iraq, according to Iraqi News.

Thousands of civilians fled areas in southwestern Kirkuk after Islamic State militants took over the region and declared it to be a part of their self-styled caliphate, filling the vacuum left when U.S. and coalition forces left Iraq.
Iraqi News reported:
The animals went on a rampage near a farmland in al-Rashad region, an Islamic State pocket 53 kilometers [33 miles] south of Kirkuk. They attacked the militants and left three killed, according to the source.
Alsumaria News quoted the source saying that “Daesh (Islamic State) militants took revenge at the pigs that attacked the farmland,” but did not clarify the method.
Islamic State militants have regularly executed civilians in Kirkuk over accusations of collaboration with security forces or attempting to flee the province to refugee camps.
Calls for the government to clear Kirkuk of the terrorists have gone unheeded while fighting has been concentrated since October 2016 in Mosul, a major city the militants have held since 2014.
At least one wondered if the boars were taking it out on the terrorists for their hatred of pork products. Another believed it to be part of a CIA plot.

@LovedayM This is basically Avatar when the omniscient gaia character turns the animals on the bad guys

That prompted an idea: forget troops, bring on the boars!

And God has indeed shown his greatness in the eternal battle between bacon and the Islamic state.

The militants refuse to eat pork? No problem. The pork can eat the militants then.
