Male Boars Keep to Themselves

Wild boars live in family herds of up to 50 females and youngsters. The young male always forms a bachelor group; however, the older male remains solitary except for during mating season. At age four, a male will usually join a female herd fighting off whoever challenges his position. Boars fight using their tusks to cut at each other’s shoulders.
