At last we saw one! A wild boar, or as they call them here in Catalunya: jabalíes. We heard so many stories and on our daily walks we see their hoofprints but never spotted one until last night when we drove home, one crossed the road just in front of our car. Apparently they are a real plague and as their numbers keep growing every year the government is permitting hunters to shoot them. They cause a lot of damage to vineyards, agriculture, parks, gardens and they have become fearless on their way to find food. They have even been spotted going to the beach in summer with the whole family and the neighbours of our local vineyard found a few cooling down in their children’s inflatable pool in the backyard. They look cute but be ware!
