Prince Harry in Doghouse Over Wild Boar Hunt

Prince Harry could be in trouble with fiancé Meghan after apparently attending a wild boar hunt in Germany.

The actress is a staunch animal rights defender and Harry seems to have blotted his copybook.

He flew to Berlin on a trip organised by a friend dubbed the “Boar Terminator” – a nickname earned by online videos of him killing boars for sport.

He flew to the German capital on a private jet with his friends and reportedly carried a powerful rifle leant to him by brother Prince William.

The 10-man group then drove to Gorlsdorf, in Brandenburg, north east Germany, where they joined a group of 60 fellow huntsmen for two days.

The hunt took place on the family estate of good friend and German aristocrat Franz-Albrecht zu Oettingen-Spielberg, nicknamed The Boar Terminator.

It was reported Harry’s group killed 15 wild boars on the trip which it seems certain Meghan Markle will not have been happy about.

The US actress, who will marry the Prince next May, is said to be an ardent lover of animals and supporter of animal rights.

There has been no confirmation as to whether Harry killed any of the 15 boars personally, nor anything to suggest the animals were shot illegally.

However, there was tragedy on the hunt when a man was gored to death.

Witnesses reported that the 50-year-old man fired  a shot and then moved into some reeds, where he apparently encountered the pig.

Police say the man suffered serious injuries to his left thigh and fell into nearby water.

He died at a hospital.

Police say the boar’s whereabouts are unknown, and it is not clear if the animal was injured.

About 500,000 wild boars are killed each year in Germany. Experts say that is not enough to stop the population from growing.
