Wild rampage


It’s one of those things about certain stories they’re a bit like a London bus, you don’t see one for hours and then two turn up within minutes of each other – unlike Vienna trams which just keep turning up J

Anyway, it was only a day or so ago that R was telling me the story of the Lower Austria resident who is desperate to find a way to stop his garden being dug up by visiting wild boar. Now, today, the Austrian Times has an article about wild boar being on the rampage in Steiermark. Austria has a very activate range of wildlife and occasionally I’m lucky enough to see the Pine Martin who makes regular visits to our garden. A lovely animal but it can do damage to the car – oh well.
