Single File

Caught
in headlights,
single file across
the road – three wild
boar.

_______________________________

On our last day in France during our recent holiday, we were driving at dusk up a road that wound with hairpin bends uphill through woodland when we came to a standstill along with a car coming down the other way as three wild boar trotted across the road. What a surprise – I have never seen wild boar before.

    Can’t say I’ve seen wild boar around here. Just raccoons, opossum, deer…

      None here either. I saw them in France and my daughter sees them in Spain. They were extinct here but I believe they have been reintroduced to parts of the UK.

        There are some big hogs, maybe some wild bore in the south.
        “Approximately half of the feral hog population lives in the southern United States. Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Oklahoma exhibit a feral hog problem. The worse affected southern state is Texas, where roughly 2 million feral hogs roam.”

    wow! three! I’ve never seen one either but have been in areas where there’s been plenty of evidence – they are very destructive!
