I can understand the porcupine but wild boar breed well and are tasty.

In fact they are a plague in the US.

They are down as of 'least concern' in the IUCN classification.

Check these Wildlife Alliance guys, grin, i know they live for this stuff,

chuckle, no names, but especially the round faced westerner
you can't really pick it up in the photo if you don't know him,
but that is one very content man right now, right in his zone. battle zone.

When i say they live for it -i mean military life live for it. Hard work, hard trainng 24/7 365
It is a war, and these guys are its dedicated, trained, officers
.
W/A takes a military approach. Not a shred of luxury in their life or their organisation. hard core.
Best $$ efficiency, best wildlife knowledge.
Their protected areas have had the bloodiest struggles against all encroachers - including against the big boys, in fact they are the only conservation group that does this on the front line.
The boss is fearless. They always challenge. They don't give flying flock.
