Web. 03 Dec. 2012.)Wednesday, December 12, 12
  6. 6. “Then in 1923, a Carmel Valley rancher imported two dozen Eurasian wild boar from a private reserve in North Carolina, to be used as game animals. These were fierce, shaggy boars with a bad attitude -- Boars have personalities just the kind of game hunters like to stalk. just like people do and can Some of the boars escaped and migrated be taught to be very into the coastal ridges, but it was hunters ferocious and mean. themselves who spread the hybridized hogs throughout the state.” ("Rooting for Feral Pigs."

  9. 9. “Feral hogs, also called wild pigs, range across 56 of 58 counties in California. Wild pigs are omnivorous. They will eat most types of vegetation and carrion. Their natural method of eating, called rooting, is very damaging to crops, making wild pigs a problem to farmers and ranchers. Feral hogs may be trapped and removed under the states depredation permit system.” (Coop, Terri Lynn. "California State Laws on Trapping and Transporting Wild Feral Hogs." EHow. Demand Media, 18 Jan. 2011. Web. 07 Dec. 2012.) Wild boars can be found all over the United States and in those areas they are quite abundant. SpencerWednesday, December 12, 12

They have four- Boars can attack people inch tusks that are very sharp and and are a threat to they can be aggressive, particularly lives.  People don’t the adult males, and charge a pet actually realize how or a person if they feel trapped. dangerous they are.

  12. 12. Conclusion • In the end Wild Boars are both a threat and apart of the natural world.  They can be a nuisance but we can’t totally get rid of them ever.  Wild Boars are animals too, even if they tear up our crops, kill our livestock, spread, disease and even kill us sometimes.   They are all over the world too, not just in California.  Wednesday, December 12, 12
  13. 13. Reflection • We learned so much about theses animals and why they travel and rut up fields. There is more then meets the eye on theses amazing creatures. (Chloe) • I had no idea how many wild boars there were around us. I learned so much about the animal and now I can look for clues of them around. (Spencer) • Wild Boars are interesting creatures I enjoyed learning about how they eat and roam the land. I never knew that they caused so much damage. (Alyssa)Wednesday, December 12, 12
