Chaaaarge!


Chaaaarge!, originally uploaded by Ben909.

This is the same boar as pictured in my previous upload. I spent quite some time with him, and on occasion I pushed my luck a bit too much. This picture was taken just before a charge – not quite what you want when you’re squatted down with a camera stuck to your face! Boar do not charge unprovoked – I really was a little too close. The charge was only a warning, or a ‘dummy’ charge, stopping short a couple of metres or so. Didn’t stop me from taking cover behind the nearest tree trunk though! This is definitely how not to go about watching wild boar 🙂 We parted company on much better terms – I recorded some video of him putting himself back to bed later on, and will get that uploaded soon.
