A wild boar is stabbed with a spear offscreen. We hear it scream which is quick but fairly disturbing.

On the contrary, the police brutality depicted in the film is seen as heinous & completely uncalled for, turning the cops into the bad guys.

Unlike the over-the-top, unrealistic sequels, this is a serious film that attempts to bring awareness to PTSD which had not been portrayed much onscreen at the time of its release, certainly not by a main character.
