Courageous Cyclists Save Drowning Wild Boar From A Canal
A very happy ending for this wild boar rescued from canal by courageous cyclists passing by..
The Wild Boar is a species of Wild Pig, native to the forests of Europe, north-west Africa and it is also found throughout Asia. The Wild Boar has an extremely wide distribution with the number of estimated Wild Boar subspecies ranging from 4 to 25.
Naturally, it is hard to classify them all as they can easily interbreed, so it is widely agreed that there are four main subspecies which are determined by their location.
They are all very similar in size and appearance, but tend to vary somewhat in colour, depending on their geographic location.
The Wild Boar is an extremely adaptable animal as it is found in a variety of different habitats, eats almost anything that will fit in it’s mouth and not only runs fast, but also swims well too. They are also commonly known as European Wild Pigs, Hogs or simply Boars.
Today, the Wild Boar has been listed by the IUCN as being a species that is of Least Concern of becoming extinct in it’s natural environment in the near future.
