Wild Boar

Wild Boar Sus Scrofa

  • 3

The wild boar (Sus scrofa) is a true native species to Britain; today the UK is currently home to a number of small wild boar populations, these mainly being confined to suitable habitats: woodlands, moors and other secluded spots in the South of England. They were popular in history as a favourite festive meat for the Royals; as a result of this and regular hunting, they became extinct throughout Britain during the 13th century.

Wild boars also make very good herders and protect flocks. Just like BABE, the movie about the pig that herded sheep. Wild boars are killed mercilessly ( like every other creature the killers want ) in Wisconsin. The use of dogs and traps is almost entirely deregulated.
