Friends of the Boar gave answers to many of the questions the author preferred to leave unanswered, such as feral versus wild, and this we will cover in a forthcoming post very soon as promised.
We will also post a piece shortly on how the population dynamics cited in this piece is simply a nonsense.
The Forestry Commission met with Friends of the Boar and this topic was discussed. So we are disappointed that Ian Harvey can present such silly population figures to BBC Wildlife. It seems that some people just cannot understand simple maths or concepts, and this now includes one new animal "welfare" group here in the Forest of Dean who now support the Forestry Commission in the promotion of large numbers of boar being culled each year based upon such silly estimates on paper.
