Perhaps they should ask the Gauls to come back. They'll sort it out.

No.  No, he didn't.   Subby went for something better.

The wild boars are calling on their way back from the fire
In August moon's surrender to a dust cloud on the rise
Wild boars fallen far from glory, reckless and so hungered
On the razor's edge you trail because there's murder
By the roadside in a sore afraid new world

They tried to break us, looks like they'll try again

Wild boars never lose it
Wild boars never chose this way
Wild boars never close your eyes
Wild boars always shine

Eh. I was going to say the same thing, but reading the article, they've been eating city garbage so they'll taste like garbage.

Yep. They should call Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco to get some recipes. Papparadelle with Wild Boar R​agú would be my first suggestion.

Probably not since the Roman's might eat offal, but they don't eat garbage.

Why would you need something like that?   Common hunting rifles would work just fine.

Or, perhaps because it's in a close urban environment, shotguns with buckshot, or better yet archery tackle.  Or you could just poison them.

But they can't do anything about it because the animal rights Looney Tunes might have a Sad.

Not the first time wild boars roamed Rome. It got pretty deserted there for a while, much of it abandoned ruins.

I know what you're saying, I grew up in the Keys and certainly looked askance at folks who were proud of their canal caught lobsters but... I mean... you've heard of "bacon" right?

Boars or Pigs?  the words are used interchangeably but there is an important difference.

If man disappears, pigs will become the dominant land animal.

They can hunt like a dog,
But their sense of smell is tuned for a omnivores palate.
When no food is available above ground, they can find and dig out food underground.
They are tough bastards. Really tough. Their hides allow them to go toe to toe with nearly any land animal.

Oh, and they are smart. Way smarter than dogs.
If they could talk you could put one in kindergarten.

And with the exception of Eurasia.. they are a invasive species! The other continents we've brought them to have no evolutionary check against them.

Long live the pigs!

Which is why hunting feral hogs is both necessary and farking scary at times.

They are the staple diet of the wolves that were living on the borders of Rome among other places last check, a fact no one seems to disapprove of there.

The great wild boar that had his den
Amidst the reeds of Cosa's fen,
And wasted fields, and slaughtered men,
 Along Albinia's shore?

Better than feral bores, which is what we've got an infestation of in much of urban America.
