I read an article about wild pigs / boars. It said in the 70's French hunters killed about 60 000 each year and now they kill about 700 000 each year, so it increased by more than ten times. It seems the population has increased because the hunters fed the boars and cross breeded them with pigs to increase the number of piglets in each litter. Also the amount of wasted food has increased and pigs tend to feed out of human produced garbage, the surface of crops has increased as well and the spreading cities made hunting them harder because they live closer to houses which makes shooting them illegal under a 150 meters radius from a house. The situation seems out of control because they multiply faster than we can kill them and some hunters keep feeding them or even breed some with the intention of releasing them in nature later as hunting targets for their sport. Politicians have an interest to keep the hunters among their friends because they are more than a million and their votes count a great deal when it comes to elect the head of state, mayors and other representatives.

It said THAT in the 70's French hunters killed about 60 000 PIGS/WILD BOARS each year and THAT now they kill about 700 000 each year, so it HAS increased by more than ten times. It seems THAT the population increased because the hunters fed the boars and cross BRED them with pigs to increase the number of piglets in each litter. Also, the amount of food WASTE has increased and pigs ARE FEEDING ON THIS human produced garbage. IN ADDITION, THE SURFACE AREA OF LAND DEDICATED TO GROWING CROPS has increased and the ANIMALS spread/MIGRATION INTO cities HAS made hunting them harder because they live closer to houses; shooting them WITHIN a 150 meters radius OF a house IS ILLEGAL. The situation seems out of control because they multiply faster than we can kill them and some hunters keep feeding them or even breed some with the intention of releasing them in nature later as hunting targets for their sport. Politicians have an interest to keep the hunters among their friends because they are more than a million and their votes count a great deal when it comes to elect the head of state, mayors and other representatives.
