I started wondering after the natural history museum explained the difference between feral hogs, domesticated pigs, and wild boar. What they said strongly suggested ours don't count, despite being globally marketed as such, so started asking around.
They're not actually boar. They were boar enough to skim through for the meat market but under any official classification theyre just feral pigs.
@sophia iirc actual wild boars are extinct in the UK?
@sophia I think there's a sort of romance to wild boars specifically, as exciting and dangerous prey for our brave hunter ancestors.
