Star calls on residents to 'accept boar'
WILD boar should be accepted by Forest people as they have been a native species for thousands of years, TV wildlife presenter Chris Packham has told the Citizen.
The presenter, pictured, famed for his role on the children's programme The Really Wild Show, has hit out at critics of the boar.
Mr Packham, now a patron of the UK Wild Boar Trust, said: "The wild boar was a native species in the UK for thousands of years playing an intrinsically important role in our landscapes ecology.
"Now it has returned to some areas, we need to adapt to accept its presence and manifest a rational tolerance to its behaviours and impacts on our lives."
