Pied wild boar piglet, video


This 5 April 2016 video shows a pied wild boar piglet, near Vierhouten village in the Veluwe region in the Netherlands. Some wild boar piglets have unusual colours. Usually, as they grow up, they get the ‘normal’ wild boar colour.

Fortunately, this piglet does not have to fear being killed by Sarah Palin; she being busy killing wild boar thousands of miles away in Wisconsin, USA.

Unfortunately, this piglet does have to fear being killed by other hunters, including poachers, in the Veluwe region.

6 May 2014

Biologist Timothy Mousseau has been studying the lasting effects of radiation on the flora and fauna of Chernobyl, Ukraine.

Translated from Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad, 16 October 2015:

At the entrance of the Czech nuclear power plant Temelin this week suddenly the alarm bells went off. The super-sensitive equipment had measured radiation on one of the employees.

What was the case? The man had eaten the night before meat of a wild boar from the Bohemian Forest. Many of the pigs in the park are still contaminated with radioactivity from the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl in 1986.
