    I dreamt I was in a house, a room with other people, we had been hired to do some hunting for a rich lady, we had green and white darts. There was a wood paneled room where we went and a huge wild boar was trying to get in the window. It was so big, It looked like a huge buffalo from its back and thats what I thought it was as its head was slung low with only its huge raggedy brown back and huge spine visible as it approached the window and I thought it was a bison. Someone had left the window ajar and it raised its boar head and with its huge tusks it opened the window and stuck in its head. I yelled for someone to shut the window who was better equipped as I did not have my weapon and yelling at them for leaving the window open. But no one would do anything. Somehow I managed to stop it by forcing the window shut. I was terrified that it had gotten its head in but relieved when I shut and locked the window.

      I dreamed the same dream, except the boar was trying to come through the screen in the door and once I closed the back door, they will still pushing against it with such force, I didn’t know just how long I would be able to hold against the closed main door, I tried poking the snout with a broom and pouring salt down it there, but it wasn’t helping, it made them angrier, I never got control of them.

  • Chrissie

    I was standing on a platform with a woman (named Rebecca or Roberta) and 2 children. I saw the boars come out from underneath the platform, I looked at the woman and asked her if the boars could climb up the wall, or walk up the steps, just then one of the boars walked up the stairs, I felt threatened and poured my coffee on the boars head and was yelling at the woman for putting me harms way…the boar never did attack anyone and then I woke up.

    i had a dream that me and a couple of people (all were girls in gowns) were running around one tiny tree. we were in a field and it was huge. all of a sudden, a wild boar starts to run towards another group of girls. then my group starts to run but i get caught on a tiny hill cliff thingy. its two feet off the ground though. so i just sit there and hope the boar doesn’t find me. but it does. when it runs towards me, it stays there. i dont move or breathe because i was afraid it would hurt me. then it starts licking my face. finally i wake up.

    I had a dream that I was walking at night at my old public school(Terry Fox P.S. In Toronto).I would say it was around 3-4 am. I walked around the back of the school when I saw a shadow of a person chasing me. I ran back to the front of the school and hid across from the street. I then saw two black cars rolling out of the parking lot looking for me. They left and I hurry and ran to this street called Belinda Square. I manage to escape and made my way to warden and bamburgh circle, that’s when I saw a giant boar the size of a car with two other small boars chasing me. I then panicked and climbed over the wooden fence on my right and landed into someone’s shed. That’s when I can hear the giant boar outside the shed and ready to charge! That’s when I woke up. Very weird dream.

    I had a few boar dreams my recent one was me and my friends were walking outdoors in a swap/Forrest environment. But I had to go pee so I separated from the group and went by this tree and I see this huge python and I decide to not pee thier. But as I continue to try to find a place to pee theirs python snakes everywhere. Until I finally find a place (a small patch of land) but as I start to pee I hear somthing charge at me and its a wild boar. I immediately stop peeing and run. Note that theirs still pythons everywhere on the ground and my running around eventually attracts two more boars. So I’m running from three boars and avoiding stepping on a pythons. I eventually decide to run into this other herd of boars in hope that the new herd of boars will distract the ones that are chasing me and my plan worked. And I find my friends and continue the dream.

    I had a dream that I was waslking down the street where i grew up and I saw a domesticated pig walking down the road. Behind the domesticated pig came a wild boar which was about the same size as the pig. The boar used it’s horns to stab the pig in the neck and killed it. Afterwards it came after my dog in which I called after it to divert it to come towards me. The wild boar then came towards me and I thought it would be no problem but it took me down and almost killed me and then I woke up.

    I had a dream where i was entering a Hindu temple. The head of wild boar had been an offering to the God. And rest of the meat had been cooked and some people were eating it.

    This dream repeats in my mind almost every nights.

    Can anyone interpret it for me?

    Dreamt I was flying, soaring above the ground and when I landed a wild hog (boar) started chasing me. He was very small, white, and dirty. From his shoulders up to his snout and tusk, he was furry; from the shoulder blades to his curly short tail he was smooth. He chased me viscously and I took off for the air. After awhile, I landed again and he gave chase, when I took off, he would go on about his business. This pattern went on for some time. Upon my final descent, I decided to come close to the ground without landing and he saw me, gave chase jumped up and bit my right hand. I woke up.

    Had a dream last night that me and my good friend were going to U.B.C. to further our education. But the city had more hills, almost like San Fransisco. But there was a heard of about 8 wild boars. I at no time had a threatened or frightened feeling. Quite the opposite actually. But they were running through the streets, and I was chasing them trying to keep them from being hit by a car. They slowly all seperated until their was just one in a small parking lot on a hill. I walked over to it and then woke up. It was a very vivid dream. No idea what any of it means, if anything.

    I dreamt that we were eating outside around trees at a table. I or someone spotted a animal in a tree, at first it was a striped animal with big circle eyes, and a long tail like a monkey. I think it was a lemur? Then the animal came down and I said no it’s a boar and it was. We thought it was going to attack, but actually it came right to me and hugged me. What does this mean?

  • Brenda

    So in my dream I was in high school all over again. With my two very good friends I had back then. But it was dark and really cold. Snowing. We were walking home and out of a bush a boar come out. We started running away….it didn’t chase us but I could hear it. I have never ever had a dream of this before. All I know is I was scared out of my mind. I woke up pretty terrified which is weird. I’m not scared of boars. What does this mean?
