Imaginative thinking on Wild Boar management

This morning’s edition of Farming Today on BBC Radio Four had an excellent funny bit. Thetford Forest wardens are concerned that Wild Boar might spread into Norfolk and irreversibly damage the woodland habitat. Farming Today was there to investigate.

Potted version:

“If they get here, how will you manage the Wild Boar population?”

“We will have to shoot them.”

“Are there no alternative control measures?”

“Well, you can cage-trap them.”

“And then what would you do with them?”

“Then you shoot them.”
