Wild Species In India
Wild Boar
Indian Wild BoarsThe Indian Wild Pig commonly known as the Wild Boar is the wild ancestor of the domestic Pig. Being a resilient and fast breeding animal, the wild Boar is one of the most widely distributed large mammals. They are tenacious mammals and when cornered can attack even large predators like the Leopard and Tiger.

The conflict between humans and wild Boars are not uncommon and chances of conflict are maximum when people venture into reserve forests to collect forest produce. Agricultural crop depredation by wild Boars is another problem in many parts of India. Besides agricultural crops, they cause damage to ground vegetation, orchards, forest plantations and also act as possible carriers of infectious diseases. Consequently, people have developed antagonistic attitude towards them, which is today adversely affecting the conservation efforts.
