Don’t Boar Me With Details

Before I start getting e-mails from my teacher friends due to the title of this post, let me assure you, it was intentional. A number of years back, I had reported here and in my Frommer’s guide, the dangers of wild boars in Budapest. Back then, a dog running off leash while out for a walk with its owner was attacked and killed by a wild boar in the Buda Hills.

Once again, the swine have come to public attention, not because they are trying to escape the big bad wolf. They are the cause for dismay. According to news reports, small herds of wild boar are not boring the residents of the upper echelons of district XII with their escapades. There have been so many of them prowling the streets and peoples’ gardens, a special hotline has been set up for reporting sightings of the gangs of pigs. 

Remember that old advertisement tag line? “Pork, it’s the other white meat.” Well, guess who has come to dinner for what is in your yard?
