TOWNSEND, Mass. — The man who was seriously injured after being attacked by a boar on his family farm Tuesday evening, has been upgraded to stable condition and is expected to survive.

Hours later, emergency responders were again called to the farm for Shannon's husband, 50-year-old farmer Jose Hernandez, who had suffered serious injuries from the same pig.
