Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Wild boar, also wild pig, (Sus scrofa) is a species of the pig genus Sus, part of the biological family Suidae. The species includes many subspecies. It is the wild ancestor of the domestic pig, an animal with which it freely hybridises. Wild boar are native across much of Northern and Central Europe, the Mediterranean Region (including North Africa's Atlas Mountains) and much of Asia as far south as Indonesia. Populations have also been artificially introduced in some parts of the world, most notably the Americas and Australasia, principally for hunting. Elsewhere, populations have also become established after escapes of wild boar from captivity.

Hello Maciej,
Impressive animal and taken in the wild! I have seen recently a boar, but in capitivity and was amazed about the size. Now to be quite close of this animal, must have been very interesting (I think I would be afraid). You seem to have been quite close.
Well done!
Kind regards

Hello Maciek,
Your wild boar is very different than ours. This is well captured image with fine details.
Thanks and kind regards,
