The family of razorback wild boars (Sus scrofa) lead by an injured matriarch recently showed up at the lower scratchpost and used it to ease the itch on their furs. This time around, the same family turned up at the upper scratchpost and did the tree as hard as they’re notorious to.
The video is a compilation of footage recorded by the trail camera at the upper scratchpost. The boars show the tree no mercy, but it’s obvious that even among themselves the larger members of the family are crude to the smaller ones, and oftentimes use their size to their advantage and push the smaller guys aside when they want to scratch their itch.
I feel sorry for the injured boar. She limps and has been limping for a while. Not sure what happened to her but it’s painful to watch how she’s unable to step on her front left foot. I hope she heals soon.
