This is the surprising story of the most underrated animal in our forests – and its remarkable comeback. Hunted, slaughtered and exterminated – that was the European wild boar’s fate throughout the last century. But now it’s back! Its weapons: talent, intelligence, and the ability to cope with society’s encroachments. Just 20 years ago an encounter with a wild boar in central Europe was a rarity. But now in some countries the stock of wild boar has become a plague.
