Strange but true!

... it’s a real “boar”! Wild pigs are conquering the Alps.

And who is to blame? You! And indeed all of us: our excessive lifestyles mean that the climate is continuing to get warmer. And what are the greedy pigs doing? Taking full advantage of the situation, as now they can gorge themselves on the extra fruit produced by oak and beech trees thanks to the warm temperatures. With full bellies, wild pigs are nowadays multiplying faster, continuing to penetrate further through the Alps and “hogging” the Alpine space.
