I hope this is the place to post this.
This is a pic a friend of mine had on his cell. Supposedly there has been some wild boar that had escaped from a big game reserve. They have been multiplying so rappidly to the point that the NYS DEC has put a no season clause on them in hopes that hunters will help eradicate them. If left unchecked and out of control they can do a world of damage to crops and farm lands.
This one was shot just a few miles from my home. Around 10 feet long and some 600 hundred pounds or so. They are located in the area that i frequently go trecking in. I havent come across one yet, and if I do hopefully its not nearly as big as this. I don not usually carry a gun, but that may change.
