But she is surviving and is still giving residents and tourists a rare treat of a close wildlife encounter.
It is a medieval, and many say, a natural scene. She "belongs" here, seeming to fit into the landscape as much as the trees do (unlike the sheep we have roaming free and alongside roads). And so she would do, as this is a native wild animal.
Many generations on now from captivity, when these wild boar were being brought from Europe for breeding with domestic pigs. They are not feral (escaped domestic animals like cats and dogs living wild), and never have been because they have always been "wild boar". An escaped mink from a fur farm or muntjac from a zoo are not termed feral and neither should the boars. The label of "feral" was a government response to appease farmers and hunters, as feral status infers no legal protection. They are the genuine article and need protection such as a closed season and licensing regulations on firearms used to kill them.
Long may they live without fear and persecution for doing their great and ancient job of natural forest management.
