    Buying Wild Boar

    Can this be done?
    I have a fantastic big valley on my farm and could release some there.
    If so anybody know who sells them?

    Do you think you could get a licence to release them?

    Good place to start then:

    http://www.britishwildboar.org.uk/

    BTW:

    The Release of Wild Animals from Captivity
    1. The Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 regulates the release of non-native species into the wild. Part I section 14 of the Act makes it an offence to release, or allow to escape into the wild, any animal of a kind which is “not ordinarily resident in and is not a regular visitor to Great Britain in a wild state”.
    With respect to wild boar, Wild boar have now been added to Schedule 9, making the release of wild boar into the wild illegal. The change takes effect from effect from 6 April 2010


    Looks like a no no then as of April this year.
