Just wild:
According to today’s Telegraph, it’s official. The wild boar is back in English woods, well established in the Midlands and their population is set to boom. We can thank the great storm of 1987, which set some breeding pairs free. They’re as big as a labrador dog, with five-inch tusks. So be careful when walking in the woods this Spring, especially if you have a dog. Dog goes off ‘rabbiting’ – comes back hotly pursued by wild boar! “Do not get between the dog & the boar!” is the best safety advice, apparently.
