English Translation

Title: Unexpected Visitor Personality: Murakami Ryuji*1
Um, this boar’s length was roughly one meter. Um, it was found on the third floor of the establishment, and it entered a sporting goods store on the second floor. It was running around inside of the establishment for about 40 minutes. This was yesterday morning, at about 10:30, soon after the shop opened…anyway*1 it’s surprising. While shopping, to see it out of the corner of your eye, something hairy, and think*2, “What’s that?!” and have this feeling like “Huh? A boar?!” Um, because it’s reckless*3, it will suddenly accelerate and come to you, won’t it? Because it can about-face and come quickly, it’s really dangerous if you’re not paying attention to this. Well, this was kind of an unusual visitor, and it became a disaster when it entered. Well*1, nevertheless, I feel like this kind of news has increased recently, if we looked at these past several years. Well, um, we also must pay sufficient attention. Well, Shimabara*4 is also, um, close to the mountains, and because of this, well*1 it’s possible that monkeys have come down, and boars too have come down. This is not unexpected, um, and I think maybe it’s a matter that concerns us. Please pay sufficient attention.
