According to YNN, there has been a second wild boar sighting in Utica, New York. On Wednesday, officers were unfortunately forced to shoot and kill a boar that was said to be aggressive towards the police. They were shocked to discover that this was not the only boar on the loose - there was a second running around the city.



A photo of the second wild boar was posted to the Utica Police Department Facebook page. According to police, this boar is significantly larger than the first one. Citizens are warned to stay away if they see one of these animals.

For all of the little piggy lovers I offer a challenge. The next time you see a sow with piglets go and capture one of the cute little piggies and see what happens when it starts squealing. If your lucky you will get up a tree before momma rips your guts out and shares them with her offspring. Never, ever hunt wild boar alone and always carry a sidearm as backup just in case the fighting gets up close.

Just wait until wild pigs invade your back yard and root up all of your grass and plants and if your dog is stupid enough to approach them they will eat him too. And by the way if you are ever unconscious for one reason or another they just might eat you too. They are very, very wary and smart. In N. Texas the wild pig problem is becoming a heath and safety issue. I see them and evidence of their presence all over the place. The other day I played Buncombe Creek Golf course and pigs had tore up one of the fairways pretty good. You think these are cute little creatures and are like pets? You are an idiot. The meat is also not edible unless you are starving.

I am sick and tired of animals being shot and killed for sport and because of their 'nuisense' value. Gaia will one day take back control and not a minute to soon.

God. Not Gaia. Paganism won't take back control, God, the creator will.

Another thing that makes wild boar so dangerous is they have their tusks. Domestic pigs' tusks are removed. My uncle used to hunt wild boar and badgers in Germany with Dachshunds. A boar is no match for a pack of Dachshunds . Mind you not miniature Dachshunds, rather the full-size 30 - 40 pound hunting variety.

Those things look cute but I'll keep my distance.

They're cute when they're babies. Somebody found a litter after the mother was shot and I took 3 of them and raised them on bottles of goats milk. Kept them in an old wooden playpen and when they were old enough and eating on their own, I turned them loose where they were found.

You are very nice, but you are an idiot. Those are invasive species that are putting other species at risk....

Just run 'em over with your car if the wild animal is trying to hurt humans.
