Wild Boar

Pig on the road. There is lots of wildlife in the Valley

Hakuba is a country town in the Japanese Alps surrounded by big mountains and National parklands. I was reminded today of how close we are to nature when an inoshishi (wild boar) made its way into town. It jumped out onto the road and caused  havoc with cars and buses trying to avoid hitting it. When it charged one of our cars I realised that it is a wild animal that should not be disturbed. A warning to anybody who does see any of the wildlife here, please be careful and it is best not to approach it.

    Need to invest in a rifle mate. Pork Belly would be sensational on your restaurant menu!
