Hi

Have there been any serious road traffic accidents involving pigs/boar in the UK yet? I don't remember reading/seeing anything.

Gerry, have you had to operate on any casualties lately?

Cheers,

Rob

RTA's involving wildboar

Not quite sure exactly where, but about three weeks ago on a Friday night a friend was driving from Blakney to Monmouth when he came across the forestry boys lifting a boar into the back of a landrover following a collision. Sorry don't have any more details than that.
Another friend attends around 20 to 25 callouts a year to deal with deer usually hit by cars in the Forest of Dean, so assuming the pigs are as much of a problem as people make out there must be other incidents.
