Which example from the passage best highlights the strength and ferociousness of the wild boar?

Based on how the passage describes the wild boar, which detail is most surprising?
  1. Formerly wild boars roamed in great numbers through the forests of Great Britain, but for many years they have been extinct in that country.
  2. The time chosen for the hunt is at daybreak, as the boar has probably been eating sugar-cane or other food all night, and is sleepy and heavy in the morning, and less capable of a long run. Savage and powerful dogs are used in the chase, which often prove serviceable in bringing the beast to bay.
  3. Kings and emperors rode to the hunt in those days with numerous followers and huntsmen, all armed with the cross-bow and boar-spear, in search of this royal game.
  4. The wolf, the lynx, and even the sly fox are terrible enemies of wild hogs, for with patience and cunning watchfulness they often succeed in making off with very young pigs, which form a most savory repast.
