Did Someone Say the Town of Mercer is a Bore? No! They Have a Boar…What!?

How is it that a Eurasian wild boar ends up in Mercer, Maine and, while apparently “looking for love,” killing a domestic pig?  There’s no no real answer to that question, according to a biologist from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

There are a couple of farms in Maine that keep a Eurasian strain of boars for people to pay to hunt but they are on closed, fenced land and the closest one, in Dixmont, is about 40 miles away…too far for a wild boar to gallivant into Mercer unnoticed.

Someone may have brought it in, not realizing the danger.  Or perhaps, it’s an alien mutant boar from another planet! While that may not be plausible, it’s as good a guess as anyone has at this point, I suppose.

Bottom line….wild boars DO NOT make good pets.  Good bacon?  That I’m not sure about but I’d be willing to give it a try!
