Family of wild boars as neighbours. ๐Ÿ—

โ€ข17 Replies

Hi everyone,

I have a family of wild boars living near to me and this morning because of the wind they didnโ€™t hear me so I managed to get a photo with lots of the little ones in.

The little ones are seriously cute and squeal with playfully but they soon grow to be 200/250 Kg.

Thereโ€™s 3 sisters with about 9 babes and the male boar, they like using the same footpath as me that is very close to my home so we often all meet they just move away from the path. I can recognise the 3 mums all quite easily now because of their facial markings and I like how they just look at me as I walk by.

I love getting plenty of exercise as coupled with a healthy balanced diet itโ€™s the way to a healthy lifestyle.

And on that happy note enjoy your day now folks. ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ—

Hi Hidden ,

The boars are so cute looking. Itโ€™s nice to see them and know the information about them. Never knew the size/weight they can be by adulthood.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

Hi Leah, they are cute, the locals call the babies โ€˜humbugsโ€™ hereโ€™s another photo with one of the mums walking towards me. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ—

Baby boars have silver stripes going longways, silver on grey gives them a humbug appearance.

I would be careful about getting between a sow and her offspring.๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Thatโ€™s very good advice Butterckup as we all know whoโ€™d came off worst! ๐Ÿค•

Thank you for the explanation. I personally never saw a humbug out by where I live. :-)

Hi Hidden

You have a really interesting set of neighbours, and I'm glad that you are all on good terms. They look cute!

Zest :-)

Hi Zest they are interesting neighbours as this is quite unusual for them to be so close to us. They are intelligent and have realised that Iโ€™m harmless to them ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ—

Hey Hidden the mums are very protective of the little ones for that reason. You can buy boar sausages in the local butchers as there are boar farms. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ—

Thank you for sharing the update picture on these babies โ€œhumbugsโ€ Jerry.๐Ÿ˜ I see them in lighter shade comparing to the grown ones and they are so adorable. ๐Ÿค— Great reminder to incorporate healthy diet into daily walks/exercises. As a matter of fact, Iโ€™m going to take a walk around my neighborhood now since itโ€™s sunny and nice breeze today. Have a good rest of the evening Jerry! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™
