Feral Pigs

Kim noticed a bit of commotion down the paddock the other afternoon - on investigating, he discovered a wild boar trying to get into the breeders paddock. We have netting fence around the outside perimeter fence, with electric fence inside to divide paddocks. Lucky the netting is secure. We've had one incidence some time ago, with a boar getting under the fence and into the paddock. Once again, we noticed the commotion straight away and got him before he could do too much damage. Hanigan got a torn ear trying to protect his girls, but nothing worse. Feral pigs are our biggest pest problem. We are concerned about dingoes, but so far haven't seen any sign of them. Same with foxes. We don't get a lot of them fortunately, but they would be a concern for any babies.

Anyway, the great white hunter got him!
