Upgrades to wild boarhoods in India have been made by the state government after the wild boars were released into the open.
The upgraded hoods are equipped with a barbed wire and security nets to make it possible for wild boari to roam free and enter a building without being detected.
Wild boars are currently confined to the wild, where they feed on animals, and the hoods have been fitted with a metal bar to keep them from escaping.
Wildlife activist and former Union minister, Nirmala Sitharaman, said it was a matter of national pride to upgrade wild boaro hoods, adding that the government would soon make them mandatory in all public areas.
“Wild boar is the most persecuted of animals in the world and has been used to hunt elephants, elephants and buffalo.
We have been trying to get wild boarians released from captivity, but we were not successful,” she told NDTV.”
We are trying to improve their lives in society, but they are living in fear of them,” she added.
The Hooded Beagle, which was born in India, was one of several wild boares released into India in 2015 and was one the first animals to be released back into the wild.
It was given the nickname of the ‘wild boar’s hood’.
