Young Wild Boar, Forest of Dean

Young Wild Boar, Forest of Dean, originally uploaded by Ben909.

After a couple of months of being unable to catch up with any wild boar, I found some this week whilst walking the dog. It was too dark for pictures even if I’d had the camera with me, but they’re always a joy to see. (This photo of a youngster was taken in August).
If anyone’s interested in seeing the wild boar in the Forest of Dean, they will be on TV tomorrow, at 8pm on ITV1 on ‘Wild Britain with Ray Mears’, along with other wildlife of the forest.
That’s something very few people in Britain have seen. It’s an animal that really should be in our landscape but the challenge will be for us to learn to live alongside it because I think we’re going to see a lot more of these animals in the future.” – Ray Mears.
