Boar. n.s. [baꞃ, Saxon; beer, Dutch.] The male swine.
To fly the boar, before the boar pursues,
Were to incense the boar to follow us. Shakesp. Rich. III.
She sped the boar away;
His eyeballs glare with fire, suffus'd with blood;
His neck shuts up a thickest thorny wood;
His bristled back a trench impal'd appears. Dryden's Fables.
