Wild Boar series (click the picture for more)

Here’s another picture from yesterday. The local newspapers have recently carried a number of stories which have done nothing but unjustifiable harm to the boars reputation. Looking behind the headlines, these few stories could have all been avoided with a little more responsibility on the part of a few dog walkers and land owners. Many people are very fearful of the boar, but as these photographs show, these are not the blood hungry animals we are often led to believe. They are a native species, unlike for instance, the fallow deer, the grey squirrel, even the rabbit. If any other native species of this country reached such low numbers as the current wild boar population, there’d be all sorts of protection and breeding schemes in place.
