  1. Love Wild Boar, and it's great that another large British mammal is roaming wild once more across the forests.

  2. I do wonder why those complaining about the boar in the Forest of Dean live in the countryside if they are so offended by mud and any non human inhabitants of the Forest. I would glady swap with them, if they would rather live in a 'sterlie', mud free and boar free, residential setting. I was town born and bred and I guess plenty in the countryside would label me a 'townie' but it seems to me I have more understanding of the ecology of the countryside than many of its inhabitants and certainly I have more respect and more knowledge. They are so ignorant and use such inflammatory language when describing the boar. "Deplorable" is a word I would only use in relation to the actions of human beings, not of any animal. All other species, aside from humans, just try to protect their place on this planet, but day by day we take more and more of the land for our own greedy use, driving them into ever decreasing pockets of suitable habitat. And yet still people like this want more...

  3. I'll never forget waiting silently on a summer's evening near the Kent/Sussex border with the local 'boar man' wondering if I was to ever see a boar in the wild. The wait was nearly scuppered with the temptation to squeal with delight when 2 females emerged, quickly followed by thier young. The joy and wonder of watching truly wild boar will never leave me.

  4. I am a Forester that of which I am proud
    Letting all wildlife run free should defo be allowed
    If I had to choose a fave
    It would be
    A humbug that doesn't behave
    Wild Boar never cease to amaze
    I could sit and watch them all day
    I love them in May
    When the Bluebells appear
    They make me smile from ear to ear....

    Hope you all enjoyed my Boaring poem!

  5. To live in an area filled with such a variety of healthy wildlife is a privilege and this animal is a welcome addition to our fauna. They will undoubtedly bring tourism into the area and as tourists visit the area to see our wildlife and to walk in our magnificent forest, they are an asset.

    Wild boar enhances the forest and has opened up a new niche; from photographers to the curious, everyone wants to see a wild boar.

    If we weren't on the map before, we are now, thanks to wild boar!
