Has anyone any idea of the number of wild boar we have in the UK?
One of my customers told me they had shot 500 last year on one farm in Gloucestershire.
I remember seeing a Forestry Commission projection of the numbers, if there where 25 breading pairs of wild boar, with the cull rate as it is at present the number could be as high 65,000 within 6 years.
With these figures if there where 250 couples breading, that's times 10, that would give us 650,000 wild boar in 6 years.
If one farm has shot 500 in one year how many are really out there?
