Whether the local boar and for that matter quite a few other animals, have come to terms with us living here and just dont see our pesky little dogs as a threat, we see can see boar almost any time we like from the house. Some of the things they like to do other than starting the dogs barking is to root around the almond trees and what is really fun is having a wallow in the overflow from the swimming pool, given  the amount of rain we have had over the last six weeks.  I think we have become a popular domain because several very large olive trees in a sheltered  and moisture holding valley have been taken down.
Something north of us startled what I can only take to have been a sow and a couple of smallies  recently and sending them frankly thundering across an open field which lies below our house. Some sight I tell you  ....not captured for posterity except in my head.

Now mainly blogging on www.suevista.blogspot.com Vistas from Afar - A European Garden Blog

Hi all,
I live in Almeria, Andalucia and have recently had what I think is a wild boar living with me. It is only small compared to other wild boars I have seen in this area as there are quite a lot here. It has been around my house for about 5 days now and it shows no signs of leaving!
I would just like to know what it actually is.

Hi Karen
too me he looks a lot like an Iberian domestic black pig as used in the famous Jamon Iberico.
