WILD BOAR  

Boar are similar to all other pigs in that they will eat a wide variety of foods; vegetables and animals. They are firmly established in the Gloucestershire/Herefordshire areas. Mating takes place in the autumn and young, normally 4-6, are born after 115 days gestation. The piglets are weaned at about 3 months but will stay with their mother until she gives birth again.

If surprised or concerned a boar will charge head down and slash upwards with its tusks. The sow charges with head up and bites.

In Germany substantial damage has been recorded. Crops have been destroyed, dug up, pets have been killed, gardens, cemeteries and graveyards have been dug up, and even the dead have been dug up. Near the Forest of Dean we have seen a field resembling an attack by a JCB digger with a huge area of pasture dug up, the grass uprooted to about 6 inches deep.

They will do a lot of damage if they get into a garden.

We do not charge for dealing with these animals if we can take what we shoot but it often means sitting up half of the night.
