    Wild boar in Tuscany have sniffed out and destroyed a stash of cocaine in a forest, leaving drug dealers £17,000 out of pocket.
    The hidden haul of white powder was strewn across the Valdichiana valley after being dug up and partly devoured by the feral hogs.

    A police investigation was sparked after a 21-year-old Albanian, allegedly a dealer, was murdered in May last year.
    The drug dealers are not the only people concerned with the influx of wild boar in Italy, with farmers protesting in Rome earlier this month over the animals wreaking havoc on their land and causing fatal car accidents.
    Two million boar are estimated to roam Italy, according to president of the farming association, Coldiretti Ettore Prandini.
    He said: "It is no longer just a question of compensation but a matter of personal safety and it must be resolved.
    "Ministries and leaders of regions and municipalities must act in a concerted manner to draw up an extraordinary plan without administrative obstacles, otherwise the problem is destined to get worse."

    Well, 2019 was definitely the year of feral hogs. It's sort of an unprecedented presence in the zeitgeist for them.

    2019 is also year of the hog (pig, whatever) if you go by the Chinese zodiac. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pig_(zodiac)

    It didn't register that "boar" was the plural of "boar" so I thought it was one lone piggy going the high hog on all that coke. I'm relieved he got to share it with his friends.

    It looks as though needing assault weapons to deal with '30-50 feral hogs' is legit.

    Woman killed by herd of wild boars outside Texas home
    26 November 2019

    A woman in Texas has been killed by a herd of wild boars in south-east Texas.

    Christine Rollins, 59, was attacked in Anahuac, east of Houston, outside a home where she worked as a caregiver to an elderly woman.
    Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne told reporters on Monday: "In my 35 years I will tell you it's one of the worst things I've ever seen."
    The victim was found by the 84-year-old woman she worked for after failing to show up for her shift on Sunday.


    Christine Rollins was a month away from her 60th birthday when she was killed"

    N
    o doubt in my mind that it was multiple animals and we can tell that from the different sizes of the bites," said Sheriff Hawthorne, adding that the homeowner's dogs appear to have chased away the hogs before Rollins' body was discovered.

    Millions of wild pigs run amok in the US

    The sheriff said neighbours had recently complained about rampant feral hogs, and officials have since laid traps for them.
    "This is a very rare incident - [from] just what little research we have found there's less than six of these that have been reported in the nation," he said.
    Wild boars - sometimes called hogs in the US - can weigh between 100 and 400lbs (45 to 180kg). Their population in Texas has risen to 1.5m in recent years.

    God, that's a horrible story. I can't imagine what I'd do if I saw a bunch of wild hogs coming at me. The scariest creatures in my area are coyotes.

    We get random javelinas, which are a type of wild boar in AZ. I'm not a hunter, but when I see a few I tell a coworker to go hunting to make some javelina jerky or at least get them off my lawn. They eat our cacti and shit all over the place.

    We've got a small property out in the country that has been torn up to hell by wild hogs. On the plus side, free lawn aeration. Sadly, they didn't manage to rustle up any cocaine.

    Yep, my ex-inlaws had problems with javelinas where they stayed for the winter just north of Phoenix.
