MELBOURNE, Fla. – He’s in a lot of pain, but wildlife trapper James Dean is fortunate to be out of the trauma center and able to share the most dangerous wild animal attack of his 20-year career.

“It was scary because I didn’t know if I was going to survive,” Dean said about the attack Monday afternoon.

Dean was called to a Melbourne neighborhood where a 200-pound wild boar was chasing small children. Dean said he trapped the boar, but it was so strong, it knocked open one side of the trap.
