Although the wild boar is primarily native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa, humans have helped spread its range much further. Because of this, the wild boar, also known as the Eurasian wild pig, is considered to be one of the widest-ranging mammals worldwide.

    History:

    Despite the wild boar’s current vast range and large worldwide population, prior to the 1900’s their numbers in the wild were decimated as a result of over hunting. In fact, it’s believed that the British population of wild boars most likely went extinct during the 13th century. Currently, boars are classified as a species of least concern and are in no danger of becoming vulnerable or endangered.

    Present Status Wild boar are considered a dangerous and invasive pest in many areas. They damage crops and compete with native species for food and territory. They can be especially damaging in the closed ecosystems of islands such as Hawaii, Galapagos, and Fiji. IUCN has them listed as least concern as they are in no danger of becoming extinct.
