I must admit I got very excited when I spotted my first wild boar, recently. We were caught in a traffic jam, on the motorway, on our way back from Toulouse to our house. I saw an animal running across a field and thought it was a dog, at first. Turned out to be a wild boar. I was amazed at how fast it could go. I’m sure I wouldn’t have been as excited if it had been rampaging through my garden!
Trust dad to think of bacon butties. Yum.
Oh wow, lets hope they carry on by before they eat all your plants #MySundayPhoto
Wild pigs – oh no! That sounds like trouble. I know how destrictive ours can be but they are contained to their sty and field.
Hi Phoebe, are they wild pigs? When we went walking on the mainland we saw plenty of evidence of wild pigs but no pigs. They are destructive creatures. The novelty factor of seeing them, once off, would be high, but I wouldn’t want them too close to where I lived!
Maybe you could train them to dig bits of the garden that need attention #MySundayPhoto
Not so sure I’d want to meet them on a dark road
Thank you for linking up
Are they mainly nocturnal, or might they join you now and again while you’re sunbathing on the lawn or by the pool?
so far touch wood they’ve mainly stayed out on the lane, just a little lawn digging!
bacon butties on legs!
They dig up lawns, charge through hedges and fences, eat veggie patches, knock compost bins over and eat all that….in other words they’re very destructive and don’t stick to woods and fields! They are certainly not protected, French love hunting! Have a look at this old post I wrote a while ago https://loumessugo.com/hunting-wild-boar-and-the-pigs-revenge
Yes they’re wild boar…wild “pigs”! We get loads around here but haven’t seen any for a while
Pigs? They’re wild boar aren’t they?? I wouldn’t get in their way! #MySundayPhoto
Are they destructive?
Do the pigs damage vegetable gardens etc or do they make their way between fields and woods along the village streets? Oh, and are they protected or considered fair game?
That’s a lot of bacon!
Oh no! You could do without these visitors.
