There has been a dramatic increase in the penetration of wild boar in Israel, not only in the city of Haifa, but also in many rural villages in the Galilee and Jerusalem corridor. The boars come in search of food and water and rip up irrigation pipes, devour gardens and leave many people wondering what can be done? Earlier we spoke with Amit Dolev, an ecologist with the Nature and Parks Authority, who said hunting them actually increases their reproduction. He said the main prevention is to reduce garbage or food the wild boar can get and never confront a wild pig because they can be dangerous.
